Husky Experience Student Advisory Council

The Husky Experience Student Advisory Council (HESAC) was formed in 2015 as an initiative of the Provost’s Office to advance the Husky Experience by gathering student input and furthering student-led projects. The Husky Seed Fund is one such endeavor to catalyze projects that embody Husky Experience goals while offering students opportunities to learn complex skills and take on responsibility with a broad campus impact.

In 2016, the council launched the new seed funding program with funds and support provided by the Provost’s Office. As council members work to lead and advance the program, they are also coached on how to include these leadership skills on their resumes, add them to their “elevator speech” and apply these lessons and skills in their day-to-day lives as Huskies.

Each year around ten students are selected to serve as HESAC members throughout the academic year. Currently enrolled undergraduate, graduate and professional students at the UW Bothell, Seattle or Tacoma campuses are eligible to apply.

Interested in joining? Look for the application in autumn 2024.
