UW Encore Initiative

What’s your Encore? The UWRA is a pioneer within higher education on behalf of Encore, a movement to help redefine what midlife and later life may mean for many people in the 21st century.

The UW Encore Initiative aims to make it easier to pursue Encore careers that combine personal meaning and social impact, whether paid or volunteer. We guide experienced UW staff, faculty, retirees, alumni and friends toward Encore roles on campus and beyond, bringing together opportunities with the talents in our UW community. We encourage Encore opportunities and offer workshops, web resources and referrals. See below for UW Encore profiles, news and opportunities. Learn more about UW Encore, including thoughts about how to get started, here. Learn more about the national movement here.

A Mailman listserv has been established to facilitate networking among anyone in the UW community who is interested in Encore. Sign up or manage your preferences.
