UW honors distinguished faculty for academic excellence

UW President Ana Mari Cauce and Provost Mark Richards honored more than 20 UW faculty members for academic excellence at the Faculty Honors Reception on Nov. 15. 

Faculty members were celebrated for their accomplishments, from being inducted into a national academy to receiving prestigious national or international awards.

The Faculty Honors Reception is an annual celebration to honor UW faculty members who have achieved the highest levels of distinction in their fields in the past year. With the significant limitations of the pandemic over the past two academic years, the event has been on hiatus. The achievements of the faculty members who received these prestigious awards between the 2019–2020 and 2021–2022 academic years were also celebrated at this November’s event.

The awards, inductions and prizes we are celebrating represent the pinnacle of scholarly and academic achievement,” President Cauce said. “They also reflect the incredible talent, energy and dedication that makes those honored such extraordinary and valued members of the faculty.”

The awards and academy inductions are also recognized on the Faculty Honor Wall located in Suzzallo Library. The permanent wall installation honors faculty members who receive prestigious awards and recognitions and can be honored in perpetuity on the UW campus.

Plan ahead: UW vs. Oregon State, Friday, Nov. 4

Football home games always bring a lot of traffic to campus as excited fans make their way to Husky Stadium by bus, rail, van, car and boat. The challenges of managing all that traffic increase when the game is on a weekday instead of a Saturday, as is the case for the upcoming nationally televised Oregon State game, which starts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 4.

  • With a later start time and the increased popularity of telecommuting, congestion isn’t expected to be as great as in the past, but here are some things to be aware of:
  • Everyone coming to campus on Friday, Nov. 4, whether for the game, for classes or for work, is encouraged to use green means of transportation that day: light rail, bus, shuttles, biking, carpools or walking.
  • For non-academic staff required to be on campus that day, managers are encouraged to provide flexibility to employees in telework-eligible positions by allowing them to work from home or to adjust their schedules to leave work in the early afternoon. Staff are encouraged to take advantage of public transportation options using their fully subsidized U-PASS.

Parking permit holders will receive separate emails directing them where to park on Nov. 4, but the general plan is as follows:

      • East campus parking lots (E12, E01, E18, etc.) will be closed to regular parking beginning at 7 a.m., with permit holders accommodated in other campus garages and lots.
      • S01 and Portage Bay parking will begin opening for Tyee football parking permits at 2 p.m. No public football parking will be allowed in these areas in order to conserve space for hospital and other staff.
      • Central Plaza Garage, Padelford Garage, C10, C12, N24 and N25 will begin opening to football parking at 2 p.m. and be fully open at 4 p.m.
      • There will be special parking arrangements made for hospital second shift workers.

Filming for HBO Max series continues July 22 through August 4

By Danica Wood

In June, the University of Washington hosted filming for the HBO Max series, The Sex Lives of College Girls, created by Mindy Kaling. Filming for this series will continue July 22 through August 4, with the production upgrading accessibility and communication following feedback from the earlier filming. 

The UW is standing in for the series’ fictional Essex College, meaning the University’s name will not be used. The series focuses on the lives of four college students and their experiences at Essex College in Vermont. The show features a diverse cast and utilizes satire and humor to explore issues of identity as well as the struggles many college students face. 

Filming will take place this summer on the Seattle campus, primarily in the Quad, showcasing the UW’s beautiful campus while providing educational experiences for students and a boost to the region’s economy.  

Approximately 250 cast and crew members are involved in the filming of the show and, during the earlier filming, around 100 UW students were hired as extras. The crew includes many locally-based artists, vendors and freelancers and the production provides income for area businesses.

Additionally, productions such as this generate revenue which is dispersed into a pool to aid in the support of smaller, new and upcoming filmmakers and photographers. 

This production uses an open set, allowing staff, students and faculty to watch and engage with crew members. An open set like this is a rare occurrence, so community members with an interest in TV and film production are invited to observe the filming and see what a career in the arts could look like. 

For every production, the UW Film Office works closely with the Disability Services Office and unit representatives to mitigate disruptions and ensure accessibility of campus facilities during productions. Productions such as this also include submission of a University Use of Facilities request, coordination with UW Facilities and building coordinators, arranging parking via Transportation Services, and consulting with Environmental Health & Safety and the UW Police Department.  

Based on feedback during the previous filming, the UW Film Office is making changes to policies and practices for this and future productions. This includes not allowing filming to occur during certain times of the academic year, including the last two weeks of each quarter, and improving signage and wayfinding during the production. 

While this production is the largest to take place at the UW in the last 10 years, filming occurs on all UW campuses and properties throughout the year. The University hosts student filmmakers, independent productions, local and national advertisements, product launch videos, episodic series for streaming, movies and more.  

If you have any questions about filming on campus, contact the Director of Brand Management, Alanya Cannon, at, or visit the Campus Use for Film & Photography website for more information.


A busload of faculty and 1,000 miles: An inside look at the 2022 UW Faculty Field Tour

By Danica Wood

The UW’s Faculty Field Tour — a 25-year tradition — was put on pause amid the COVID-19 pandemic. After a two-year break, the tradition resumed this year.

Beginning on June 11, 34 new faculty from across the UW’s campuses boarded a charter bus to experience a 1,000-mile tour of Washington state. Starting in Seattle, going south to Olympia, east to Yakima and Spokane, on to the Grand Coulee Dam and back home, this tour provided insight into the communities, culture and beauty within our state.New UW Faculty visit the the Diablo Lake

“Volcanoes and basalt rocks, black holes and neutron stars, bees and wildflowers! During the Faculty Field Tour, I had a blast learning about the wild state that we inhabit and was reminded that we are infinitesimally small — in the very best way,” said Rawan Arar, assistant professor of Law, Societies & Justice. “It was impactful to meet with leaders from the Colville Reservation, who reminded us that, as teachers, we not only have a responsibility to our students but also to our students’ families and communities that entrust us with their children’s education.”

Throughout the five-day tour, faculty met with community members, local residents and collaborators to gain insight into the people, economy and scenery of the Pacific Northwest.

“We serve the entire state, and we wanted to make sure from the outset that faculty had the opportunity to experience some of our regions that are more rural, or have different economic drivers, different cultures or different feelings and expectations about the purpose and experience of higher education,” said UW President Ana Mari Cauce.

“It’s also a way of introducing residents from across the state to the excellent faculty we have at the UW who might serve as teachers or mentors for their students if they were to attend the UW, or who might be good collaborators on community or research projects,” said Provost Mark Richards.

Experiences on the tour included stopping at the Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic, which provides services to local agriculture workers in collaboration with the UW, and a visit to Heritage University, which partners with the University of Washington that aims to make law degrees more accessible to students from historically excluded communities — including Latino/Latina/Latinx and Indigenous students.

The tour stopped next at the Hanford Site to tour the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) — where UW professors have been instrumental in some of the key findings of a gravitational-wave astrophysics experiment — as well as a visit to Sen. Mark Schoesler’s wheat farm. Last, the group stopped at the Grand Coulee Dam and the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation.

“By better understanding the history and culture that shapes our region, we can be better partners in telling the story of our state,” said Ed Taylor, vice provost and dean of Undergraduate Academic Affairs, who has been deeply involved in the program since the mid-2000s. “By taking this tour, we are able to learn about and honor the past, present and future of our state so that we may deepen our appreciation for how we as educators can thoughtfully care for our region.”

“This was an eye-opening experience that made me realize what an honor it is to hold the position that I have,” said Chirag Shah, associate professor in the Information School. “Being a faculty member at a public university is not just a job or a career — it’s a calling. It’s a privilege to be at the forefront of world-class research and education while also serving our local community.”

For those who joined the UW during the pandemic, the tour also provided an opportunity to build community and explore the region.

“The Faculty Field Tour was an unbelievably enriching opportunity to learn about the remarkable state of Washington,” said Annie Downey, associate dean of University Libraries and director of the UW Tacoma Library. “I spent the week in awe of how inspired I felt while traveling in a packed bus up and down mountains, across open land, and alongside flourishing farms and flowing rivers. All the while, I had the pleasure of learning with and about an amazing group of kind, curious, brilliant and fun new colleagues.”

UW will again host Tent City 3

As part of its population health efforts, the University of Washington will again host Tent City 3 (TC3) for 90 days, from mid-December 2022 through mid-March 2023. The tent-city community, which provides shelter space for local people experiencing homelessness, will be located in the E-21 parking lot, next to the UW Waterfront Activities Center.

Tent City 3 hosted approximately 40-60 people the past two residencies on the UW campus, in 2017 and 2021, on a lot near the Fishery Sciences buildings. Organizers are expecting similar numbers for this winter.

“The past two residencies have provided great opportunities for students and TC3 residents to learn from each other,” said Sally Clark, Director of the UW’s Office of Regional & Community Relations. “TC3 remains a valued partner in UW’s academic mission given their track record of self-government, safety and compassion.”

UW’s Tent City Collective, a registered student organization made up of students, staff and faculty, made the request for UW to host a third time. During previous stays on campus, faculty worked homelessness and housing crisis issues into their course curriculum in concert with the arrival of TC3 on campus. UW student groups and professional organizations held service days on-site. UW’s School of Nursing and the Center for One Health Research have led multiple engagements for students learning about direct care and homelessness.

As with previous residencies at UW, the TC3 community and UW will develop an agreement regarding rights and responsibilities during TC3’s stay, including a safety plan. Information about previous residencies and previous agreements can be found on UW’s Addressing Homelessness webpage.

The UW works on “The Boys in the Boat” film adaption

Grant Heslov and George Clooney

Daniel James Brown’s 2013 bestselling book “The Boys in the Boat” is being adapted for the screen by MGM and Smokehouse Pictures with George Clooney and Grant Heslov directing. The film will tell the story of the legendary 1936 University of Washington men’s rowing team: hardworking, blue-collar underdogs who stunned the world by winning gold at the Berlin Olympics.

Callum Turner

The long road from page to screen reached a turning point this month when it was announced that Callum Turner has been cast to play famed UW rower Joe Rantz. Turner may be best known for his portrayal of Theseus Scamander in the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise, but he has a long resume of critically acclaimed roles in festival favorites such as “War & Peace,” “Green Room” and “Queen & Country.”

While another location will stand in for the 1930’s Pacific Northwest, we may see Suzzallo Library, our iconic waterways, and the historic ASUW Shell House on the big screen thanks to modern visual effects. The University’s official liaisons with the producers are Creative Director Murphy Gilson and Brand Management Director Alanya Cannon, who manages the UW’s film office. Gilson and Cannon are coordinating with the producers as well as members of the UW and rowing communities to make the film as authentic and purple as possible. Gilson has 25 years of experience in Hollywood as a creative and executive in film and television. Cannon most recently helped integrate the UW into the Lionsgate film “RUN,” now available on Hulu.

Olympic champion crew team, UW; gold medal at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin

“The Boys in the Boat” film could have a lasting impact on campus. The University recently embarked on a $13 million fundraising campaign to restore and preserve the 103-year-old ASUW Shell House for our campus and region — an enduring metaphor for what it means to be from the Northwest, and a physical embodiment of UW values. The film is a chance to instill pride in our past and inspire donors to be part of both our history and our future.

Rowing is one of the oldest and winningest sports at the University of Washington and part of our unique history. It’s a point of pride that UW rowing is an inclusive and supportive program founded on Husky values of collaboration, respect and integrity.
The UW has a tradition of dominance in this sport, which is normally reserved for the wealthiest private institutions. Over the program’s history, Huskies have earned 19 national championships and produced countless Olympians, many of whom had never rowed before coming to the UW.

The rowing program and the student-athletes will also benefit from the increased recognition. While rowing is part of our legacy, it is not an income-generating sport. Since the early days, Washington Rowing has relied on the generous support of alumni, families, friends, fans and the local community. This new spotlight may encourage support for the program for years to come.

How contact tracing works at the UW

by Will Shenton

As we get ready for more employees and students to return to campus this September, our first priority is the health and safety of all UW community members. With autumn quarter approaching, the Environmental Health & Safety department (EH&S) has been hard at work developing and refining protocols to address COVID-19 cases and concerns.

Let’s review how contact tracing works at the UW.

What to do if you have a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19

Whether or not you currently work on-site at a University location, all UW community members are required to notify EH&S immediately after:

  • Receiving a positive test for COVID-19
  • Being told by your doctor that they suspect you have COVID-19
  • Learning that you have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19

You can notify the COVID-19 Response and Prevention Team by emailing or calling 206.616.3344.

Note: We encourage all UW students, faculty and staff to enroll in the Husky Coronavirus Testing (HCT) program for easy, accessible testing. HCT will automatically notify the COVID-19 Response and Prevention Team of any positive test results.

How UW contact tracers respond to a COVID-19 case

Within 24 hours of learning about a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 case, EH&S contact tracers leap into action and connect with the individual to identify any situations where they have been in close contact with other people while they were infectious.

They also provide the individual with guidance on how long to isolate and monitor symptoms.

  • Close contact means being within 6 feet of a person who has confirmed or suspected COVID-19 for a total of at least 15 minutes during a 24-hour period (even if both people were wearing face coverings), living with or caring for a person who has COVID-19, or having direct contact with infectious secretions (e.g., being coughed on, kissing, or sharing utensils).
  • The infectious period starts approximately 48 hours before the first symptoms appear. For people without symptoms, the infectious period starts 48 hours before they were tested for COVID-19.

Using this information, the contact tracers then quickly reach out to any UW community members who were in close contact with the person who tested positive and help them take action to protect themselves and others. Considering the close contact’s exposure dates, vaccination status, and symptoms, they will make recommendations that may include:

  • Staying home and away from others for a period of time
  • Getting tested for COVID-19
  • Watching for symptoms of COVID-19

For privacy reasons, EH&S contact tracers will not reveal the identity of the individual who tested positive for COVID-19.

The King County Public Health Contact Tracing Team will also reach out to any individuals who test positive for COVID-19. They will ask about all potential close contacts during the infectious period, including those outside the UW community.

If the person has the WA Notify – Washington Exposure Notifications app on their phone, they will be able to enter a verification code that will send anonymous notifications to any other app users who have been near the COVID-19 positive person in the past two weeks, without revealing any names, dates or locations.

How COVID-19 cases affect in-person classes, labs and offices

If you were in the classroom, lab, office or other University location where a COVID-19-positive person spent at least 10 minutes, even if you were not a close contact of that person, EH&S will notify you of the potential exposure and provide guidance to help prevent spread.

EH&S will notify instructors directly if a student in their in-person class has a suspected or confirmed case, and provide them with a notification to send to all other students who attended the class. The notification includes information about the date of the potential exposure, as well as guidance on how to watch for symptoms and quarantine, if necessary.

  • Only those who have been in close contact with a COVID-19-positive individual may need to quarantine. In most cases, fully vaccinated people who are not experiencing symptoms do not need to quarantine following an exposure.
  • While in quarantine and isolating, students are expected to not attend class. Instructors and students are both encouraged to communicate needs for accommodations and questions or concerns regarding their ability to fulfill the class’s academic requirements.
  • UW staff will receive a similar notification about potential exposures in the workplace.

If you are not directly contacted by a contact tracer, that means you were not identified as a close contact.

We’re in this together

The UW is committed to maintaining a safe, healthy learning and working environment for our whole community, and your participation is an essential part of our efforts.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing more deep dives into our COVID-19 policies so that we can all do our part to make this a fantastic autumn quarter.
