About the Year in Partnerships 2017

The scope and breadth of work produced by students, faculty and staff across the University of Washington is astounding. At UW-IT, we are proud to partner with them to enrich the student experience, support research, modernize business systems, improve IT infrastructure and enhance collaboration.

We help our partners leverage technology to advance teaching, learning, innovation and discovery, wherever they are: at UW Bothell, UW Tacoma, on the Seattle campus or at other locations in Washington and across the globe.
