The University of Washington acknowledges the Coast Salish peoples of this land, the land which touches the shared waters of all tribes and bands within the Suquamish, Tulalip and Muckleshoot nations.

The purpose of this web site is to centralize the Native-focused resources available on the University of Washington’s campus in Seattle. We understand the University can be a challenging environment for those coming from American Indian/Alaska Native communities and difficult to navigate for anyone who is new to the campus.

We also recognize the need to provide guidance for students to find the academic, social, and cultural support systems available to them. This site is dedicated to serving those needs of American Indian/Alaska Native students, staff, faculty and communities.

We are working closely with the Native American Faculty and Staff at the University of Washington to determine whether the ceremony will be online or in-postponed to fall. Students expecting to graduate should watch their emails for more information by May 1, 2020
