FEATURED HUSKIES FROM THE 14TH LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT

"The University of Washington provides me with skills and opportunities that help me thrive in the field of Computer Engineering. As a student, I have been able to form strong relationships and find my place in multiple communities and groups at the UW."
Simplicio DeLeonComputer Engineering; STARS student
"A big reason why I decided to go into dentistry is that I saw the need for dental care in my community and communities like it around the state. I saw value in being able to serve underserved populations, and being a student at the UW has allowed me to continue doing that. I hope to have a career dedicated to lifelong service of those in need!"

SERVING THE 14TH LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT

The UW facilitates hundreds of programs in communities across the state. Below are a few that operate in your district.

UW RISE UP/SKY GEAR UP

RISE UP/SKY GEAR UP is a federal grant program that provides middle and high school students from low-income families in the Skagit, Klickitat and Yakima valleys with the support they need to access and succeed in college. Beginning in sixth and seventh grades, students join a program cohort for the next seven years. The program focuses on helping students enter STEM fields, providing tutoring, mentoring, financial aid instruction, college and educational field trips, teacher professional development and parent empowerment.

UW in the High School

Through the UW in the High School program, high school sophomores, juniors and seniors can complete University of Washington courses — and earn college credit — in their own classrooms with their own teachers. Teachers are approved and trained by UW faculty to teach official UW courses using UW curriculum, activities, texts, tests and grading scales. Participating students can earn college credits at a fraction of the cost, and these credits are accepted by most colleges and universities across Washington and around the country. Partner high schools can offer UW coursework in computer science, math, science, world languages, humanities and social sciences.

Young Executives of Color

Young Executives of Color (YEOC) is a nine-month college pipeline program hosted by the UW’s Michael G. Foster School of Business. YEOC focuses on engaging high school students of color in a comprehensive curriculum that includes college preparation, professional development, business lectures and powerful mentorship. The program, which is free to students, currently serves 190 students from over 75 high schools around Washington state.

Pacific Northwest Seismic Network

The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network (PNSN), a partnership between the University of Oregon and the University of Washington, is dedicated to reducing impacts of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions in Washington and Oregon by providing accurate and timely information about earthquakes and ground motions to scientists, engineers, planners and the public. The second-largest seismic network in the United States, PNSN has more than 300 seismograph stations as well as several offices and personnel across the region.
