Together We Will

Courage. Kindness. Creativity. Innovation. Since 1861, these Husky values have seen us through good times and bad — times of triumph and times of fear and uncertainty. And these values will help us overcome together the challenges we face today in the COVID-19 pandemic.

We find tremendous hope in the strength and resilience of the many UW community members working to see us through this difficult time. This is a defining moment for the UW and for our community. Our efforts today and in the months to come will heal and sustain Seattle, Washington state and the world. Though we’re standing six feet apart, we can do this together.

Join us.
