Undergraduate Academic Affairs

Vision, Mission and Values


Undergraduate Academic Affairs serves at the heart of a University of Washington where every undergraduate engages in deep and meaningful work and graduates prepared to thrive in a future they help to create.


Undergraduate Academic Affairs creates opportunities for innovative academic experiences where the boundaries are blurred between on and off campus, teachers and learners, and spaces for learning and practice. We provide the context and support for students to reflect on their growth and challenges, and to explore who they are, who they will become, and how they will contribute to communities here and around the world.


We believe that curiosity, collaboration and resilience flourish in a diverse and inclusive culture and lead to innovation, organizational excellence, and formative and transformative student learning.
