News & Events
New Global and Regional Studies major offered to students
A new major in the University of Washington Jackson School of International Studies offers more flexible course options, allows undergraduates focus on a particular geographic region and theme and provides more choices for the capstone experience.
Campus botanical gardens working to be more inclusive
Botanical gardens historically are exclusive spaces, but the University of Washington is working to change that. Many gardens originated as private spaces for predominantly white and wealthy individuals, said UW Botanic Gardens director Christina Owen. The collections were often curated through a process of stealing and renaming before the gardens were gifted as land to cities and universities.
Safely gathering for autumn quarter classes and experiences
Autumn quarter classes, experiences and services will again be offered largely in person as we continue to stay vigilant to the continued presence of COVID-19. The University recommends wearing a high-quality mask inside UW facilities where they aren’t otherwise required.
