Undergraduate Academic Affairs

Careers in UAA

Undergraduate Academic Affairs (UAA) is a catalyst and advocate for excellence and innovation in undergraduate education. We lead programs and services for all students to succeed academically, learn from their challenges, and explore who they are, who they will become and how they will contribute to their communities and the world. Our work ensures that undergraduate education is strengthened by the UW’s distinctiveness as a major public research university. Read more about our programs and values.

Undergraduate Academic Affairs is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion

We seek competitive applications from individuals who fully embrace the University of Washington’s commitment to racial equity, diversity and inclusion. We are committed to building and supporting a diverse and inclusive work team and to bringing these core values into our daily work with students, faculty, staff and the communities in which and with whom we work.

Currently, student-facing positions are eligible for one day of remote work/week and non-student-facing positions are eligible for two days of remote work/week.
