Undergraduate Academic Affairs

On March 10, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor visited the University of Washington as part of her tour for the paperback release of her memoir, My Beloved World. Provost Ana Mari Cauce interviewed Justice Sotomayor in front of a mostly student audience of 1,100 in the Husky Union Building. Provost Cauce centered the interview on questions submitted by students and the audience learned about the Justice’s formative experiences that shaped her into who she is today.

Below is the full-length video of the interview, photos of the event, and links to media coverage about the Justice’s remarkable visit.


Watch what Sotomayor has to say on a range of issues, including advice she would give to her 20-year-old self, handling racially-charged situations, what she is optimistic about, and much more.
