Each year, thousands of UW undergraduates participate in research with faculty. As these undergraduate researchers graduate, they bring the critical thinking and problem solving skills they learned to graduate school or right into the workforce. For Undergraduate Academic Affairs and aeronautics and astronautics alum Peter Norgaard, ’04, research was an integral component of his undergraduate years.
As a UW undergraduate, you may have participated in service learning, presented at the Undergraduate Research Symposium, received a Mary Gates Leadership award or served on the Honors Student Advisory Panel. All of these experiences (and more, in fact) make you an alum of Undergraduate Academic Affairs. Check out what some of our alumni have been up to since graduation.
Enjoy articles featuring UAA programs or people published since the last UAA Alumni e-newsletter. The stories are presented within themes that define the work of Undergraduate Academic Affairs.
Undergraduate participation in service learning has increased dramatically as students are eager to apply what they’re learning in class to an outside context and because they are driven to give back to the community. Learn how service and leadership made a difference for two UAA alumnae and meet two students who shared their experiences at this year’s Spring Celebration.
