Reimagining safety at the UW
Creating learning, working and living environments that enable every UW community member to be successful requires a holistic approach to safety and well-being. We are reimagining how safety and well-being resources are organized and delivered at the UW. Review our back-to-school checklist to help ensure your student stays safe from COVID-19.
