Undergraduate Academic Affairs

Undergraduate Academic Affairs advances and deepens undergraduate education at the University of Washington. By connecting undergraduates to the breadth and depth of the UW’s opportunities, and by creating new ways to connect, we guide students toward participating in the life of our University so they are equipped and eager for their journey ahead.
