Undergraduate Academic Affairs

Vision, Mission and Values


Undergraduate Academic Affairs serves at the heart of a University of Washington where every undergraduate engages in deep and meaningful work and graduates prepared to thrive in a future they help to create.


Undergraduate Academic Affairs 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.


We believe that curiosity, collaboration and resilience flourish in a diverse and inclusive culture and lead to innovation, organizational excellence, and formative and transformative student learning.
