"Through the lens of healthcare, UW has provided me with the language and knowledge, the research and advocacy skills, and the compassion and resilience to support people during their most difficult and vulnerable moments, my greatest life goal. As I pursue a career as a physician, I am grateful for my family—Canadian ranchers and Hong Kong immigrants—for instilling in me courage, care, and community which positioned me to navigate my Husky Experience with these same values."
Andrea ScallonB.A.: International Studies; 2022 Husky 100 member
"Coming from an immigrant family, my experiences at UW have inspired my passion for improving the accessibility of higher education. At the same time, my Husky experience has also given me the unique opportunity to see both the successes and shortcomings of medical solutions through the lab and the clinic. As an aspiring physician-scientist, my experiences in research, medicine, and mentorship have prepared me to translate future therapies from the bench to the bedside, one patient at a time."
Joey LiangB.S.: Bioengineering; 2022 Husky 100 member

"I am a deaf woman of color committed to uplifting the disabled community and normalizing accessibility in society. During my time at UW, I utilized design to advocate through many channels: the ASUW Student Disability Commission, various research roles, nonprofits, and my personal community. Because of my husky experience, I’ve grown as a designer, mentor, leader, and friend. I will take my learnings and strengthened values of disability justice, equity, and inclusion in all future endeavors."
Joyce LinB.Des: Interaction Design- Art History; 2022 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 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.

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.

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.
