We have re-imagined our Parent & Family events this year, rather than one Parent & Family weekend – we hope to have you connect with your Husky and UW Family throughout the academic year – in a series of virtual conversations with campus leaders and programs. Our events will be focused on supporting autonomy and encouraging a growth mindset in our Huskies. We will have conversations with campus leaders focused on resilience, wellness, career exploration and finding community – and how to support your student – whether they are with us on campus or at home with you.
