"I study the way power is communicated in processes such as social support and conflict in the contexts of interpersonal and family relationships. I love the support for research at the UW and the focus on mentorship that my advisor and the Department of Communication prioritize. As a first-generation student, I find this training essential as I prepare for a career in academia."

"As a Neuroscience and Disability Studies dual degree student, I have learned about disability in a holistic manner, both from a social and biological perspective. Using these perspectives, I have worked to make both UW and my home community more inclusive and accessible for people with intellectual disabilities. I am passionate about working with people with intellectual disabilities and plan to bring this passion to a future career in medicine."

The UW facilitates hundreds of programs in communities across the state. Below are a few that operate in your district. Programs active as of January 2021.

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. Check out which schools UW in the High School is partnering with in your area.  


UW INSPIRE supports western Washington educators of pre-K through 12th grade with reciprocal research-practice partnerships, focusing on student thinking and giving educators the opportunity to learn alongside children, improving instruction and student achievement. Fueled by innovative local educators at all levels of the public-school system and supported by local philanthropists and individual donors, INSPIRE is coordinated by a team of faculty, staff and graduate students at the UW College of Education.

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.
