At the UW, discovery—of new knowledge, of self, of others—energizes your education. We choose process over product, strengthening independence and confidence. No limits.
We invite you to explore the opportunities of being a full member of this academic community, where everyone is both a teacher and a learner. The UW promises no cohesive experience for all incoming students; our resources are far too richly diverse for that. But if the chance to shape your UW appeals to you, this may be the right place for you.
Think of the UW as a well-stocked kitchen, piled high with local produce next to the world’s rarest spices, where innovations happen every day. Now, imagine this is where you cook and eat your daily meals.
