CORE is the University of Washington’s research administration learning program. This is the “go-to” place for training, resources and learning in research administration. All courses are offered at no charge. Read more about our learning initiatives in the 2017 Learning Strategy.

NOTICE: In-Person CORE classes being Zoomed or rescheduled. If you have questions, CORE Zoom FAQs may help.

CORE students: Due to concerns around the novel coronavirus and in accordance with Governor Inslee’s executive order prohibiting situations that involve close contact, CORE will be either Zooming or rescheduling any in-person classes offered between March 31-April 24, pending further guidance from public health officials.

Where appropriate, CORE in-person classes scheduled between March 31-April 24 will be offered via Zoom. A few in-person classes do not lend themselves to a Zoom format and these will be rescheduled.  We are in the process of updating the CORE registration page with this information.  Updated information for all courses offered through April 24 will be available on the registration page by March 25th.  Email corehelp@uw.edu with any questions regarding CORE coursework.
