The UW in Your Community

What’s the UW done for you lately?

The University of Washington is first and foremost a place that educates the citizens of Washington State.  But as a public university, we’re so much more than an institution on Montlake.  UW students, faculty, staff and alumni are making an impact everyday in communities throughout the state.  They are your teachers, your doctors, your problem-solvers and even your next-door neighbors.

Today, we’re excited to launch a initiative called “UW in Your Community”– a dynamic, interactive web map showing the many ways the UW is making a difference in each of the state’s 49 legislative districts.  Did you know that UW students have designed and built greenhouses as part of redevelopment in Twisp? Or that 18,000 UW alumni live in the 5th district near Issaquah?  Or that UW faculty are helping kids get ready for for college in high schools throughout the state?
