ASAIS Roadmap

ASA-Information Systems Roadmap

The ASA-Information Systems team has prioritized work and projects that will provide ASA units with improved tools and support to better serve the UW community.


Our mission is to enhance the student experience for all students—to, through, and beyond the university—inside and outside the classroom (in-person and online).

We provide oversight, foster collaboration, pilot new ideas, and unify strategic efforts in and beyond ASA to ensure broad and universal alignment with UW values. We highlight and amplify strategic efforts within ASA and the broader ASA alliance (Graduate School, Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity, Student Life, Undergraduate Academic Affairs, ASA, and ASA Advancement) consistent with UW values to create a leading-edge student experience. We support faculty in instruction and student access, learning, and success. We pilot and launch new, strategic efforts and support unit-led efforts.
