"My husky experiences have helped a passionate and eager student like me bloom into a diligent individual. As an aspiring physician, I will use the foundations that I have built as an undergraduate at the University of Washington and continue to build towards contributing to a future where everyone feels like their concerns are validated in an environment that focuses on community and inclusivity. UW Tacoma has created an environment for me where I can prosper as a leader with a thirst for knowledge and a desire to assist others."

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.


Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) is a federal grant program providing middle and high school students from low-income families in south King County with the support they need to access and succeed in college. Beginning in sixth and seventh grades, 4,300 students participate in GEAR UP for seven years. The program helps students enter STEM fields, offering support through tutoring, mentoring, financial aid instruction, college and educational field trips, teacher professional development and parent empowerment.


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.
