FEATURED HUSKIES FROM THE 26TH LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT

"As a multi-generational husky, I have much love for this school, which is why I have gotten so involved with our student association. UW has offered so many opportunities to myself and my family, I strive to give the same opportunities to other students across all three of our campuses!"
Alex DavidsonPolitical Science, '23

"My UW adventures have transformed me into who I am today: a leader, mentor, and advocate for educational equity. My mentors and family have inspired me to make a positive impact wherever I go and ingrained in me a higher sense of purpose. Like them, I hope to continue to share and increase access to knowledge and resources to increase equity through mentoring, tutoring and advocating for those who lack the resources and support needed to succeed. Everyone deserves access to equitable education."
Jenna GordonStatistics, Psychology, Mathematics; 2021 Husky 100 member
"I was introduced to cancer at a very early age from watching my mother in her battle. My curiosity for the disease and the pain it caused my family catalyzed my passion for biomedical science. At the University of Washington Tacoma, I have been able to make connections with other passionate students and work towards a healthy and equitable future for all. Through my various roles on campus, my energy goes to uplifting and engaging students with all the opportunities the community has to offer."

SERVING THE 26TH LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT

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.

Forefront Suicide Prevention–Safer Homes, Suicide Aware

Safer Homes, Suicide Aware promotes programming led by the UW’s Forefront Suicide Prevention program to educate the public about how easy access to lethal means, including firearms and medications, can contribute to suicides. The program focuses especially on men ages 35–64 and veterans, who are statistically more likely to use firearms to end their lives. The work is guided by a task force that includes diverse perspectives and develops innovative, impactful strategies.

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.

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.
