"I am a child of Deaf adults and a disabled-identifying community organizer/disability justice advocate, committed to celebrating and uplifting all bodies and minds. My Husky experience has shown me that when accessible and inclusive spaces don’t exist, I have the power to create them. My work with the ASUW Student Disability Commission and Special Olympics Washington has strengthened my values of equity, interdependence, feminist care ethics, and collective liberation."
Christine LewDisability Studies, Psychology, American Sign Language; 2021 Husky 100 member


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.  

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.
