SERVING THE 35TH 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 2023.
Washington Sea Grant
Washington Sea Grant is part of a national network of Sea Grant programs administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. For over 50 years, WSG has funded high impact research projects and partnered with communities, businesses, educators and the public to advance regional understanding and sustainable use of our ocean and coastal resources. Washington Sea Grant strives to support healthy, productive and resilient coastal and marine ecosystems that sustain our state’s diverse cultural and maritime heritage, vibrant coastal communities, clean waters and beaches, prosperous fisheries and aquaculture, and diverse wildlife.
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.
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.
