"I joined the UW School of Social Work as a former Army medic, interested in learning new skills to make a positive difference in the world. Throughout my time in the MSW program I’ve had many opportunities to engage in research and advocacy in both the trans and veterans communities. I’m grateful for the many learning opportunities I’ve had at UW and I am committed to working toward improving the lives of others through research and clinical practice."

"My Husky experience has taught me my potential as a leader, an activist, and a scholar. I study the intersections between issues of injustice and the climate crisis, and have spent my time at the UW working to make tangible change for my communities as a lobbyist, a sitting Commissioner for the City of Seattle, and the Director of the ASUW Queer Student Commission. I plan to continue this work by pursuing a law degree with a focus in environmental law after I graduate."
Lillian WilliamsonB.A.: Political science; B.A.: Environmental studies; 2022 Husky 100 member
"I am the product of the seeds planted by my ancestors, the hopes and dreams of my immigrant parents, and of the communities that have held me. A culmination of the people, places, and experiences I have encountered throughout my life – I am community made. My Husky Experience is rooted in radical love, resistance, and the Vietnamese value of collectivism – together we won’t just survive, but thrive."

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 2023.

Foster School of Business–Consulting and Business Development Center

The Center engages students and local business owners in solving complex, unstructured, real-world challenges. Through faculty-led business education courses and the work of student consulting teams, the Center grows business revenues and jobs with a focus on businesses owned by those who are LGBTQ+, people of color, women, veterans, tribal citizens and those located in underserved communities. Since its inception in 1995, the Center has generated more than $210 million in new revenue and retained over 200,000 jobs. Classes are offered in Seattle, Yakima, the Tri-Cities and on tribal lands while drawing business owners regionally and nationally.

Forefront in the Schools

Forefront in the Schools (FIS), an initiative of the UW’s Forefront Suicide Prevention program, guides high school administrators, students and parents through a collaborative, comprehensive process of policy development and curriculum improvement to build on existing student mental-health and suicide-prevention efforts. FIS aims to create school communities that are prepared to prevent student mental-health problems and respond to students with mental-health needs, including those at risk for suicide.

Livable City Year

Livable City Year (LCY) creates meaningful and sustained partnerships between the University of Washington and local governments, engaging UW faculty and students to work on community-identified projects to improve livability and sustainability. Through LCY, hundreds of students benefit by tackling real-world challenges, and partner cities benefit from bold applied ideas that propel fresh thinking, improve livability for residents and invigorate city staff. The program welcomes new partnerships with communities of all sizes and budgets.

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.


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.
