About the UW presentation

This PowerPoint presentation is designed to introduce audiences to the University of Washington. It is intended primarily for audiences in Washington, but it can be adapted for presentations given outside the state. It can be used as either a stand-alone presentation or an addition to a presentation on another topic that would benefit from the audience’s first having a better understanding of the UW and its public mission.

The presentation is divided into six sections: an opening section, a closing section and two slides for each of the UW’s four brand pillars. The notes section of each slide has additional facts and information that build on the theme of that slide. These are intended to provide options that you can choose from — you do not need to use all these facts in your presentation. Indeed, it would be a very long presentation if all the facts were used.

The UW’s budget toolkit

The University of Washington’s annual budget is about $7.8 billion dollars. That’s a lot of money, and people often ask where the money comes from and how it is spent. In reality, the budget is divided up among many parts of the university, and the money that can be put to general unrestricted use — the operating budget — is a relatively small piece of it.

This toolkit visualizes how the University of Washington’s budget is funded and how revenue sources can — and can’t — be used for various priorities. It also shows how much of the UW’s core funding comes from the state and how much from tuition and how that has changed over time, as well as how the UW’s funding stacks up against its peer universities in other states.

Both a video and PowerPoint version are available for download and for use in your presentations and meetings.

Download the “Funding the UW” presentation

The notes sections of the presentation are adapted from President Cauce’s descriptions at the 2018 Annual President’s Address. The slides can be used in sequence to explain how the budget revenue streams are utilized, or individual slides can be used to illustrate specific points about how the UW is funded.
