Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center

Our partnership philosophy


The Carlson Center is interested in developing partnerships with non-profit, community-based, and public organizations in the greater Seattle area.  Our goal is to build and sustain reciprocal relationships that simultaneously meet community-defined needs while advancing the learning goals of University of Washington students and their instructors.

Our partnerships are varied in their community focus and their depth of engagement.  We are always eager to engage in conversations with new and current community partners!  To start a conversation with the Carlson Center, please reach out to us by emailing
