The University of Washington Alumni Group on LinkedIn has passed the 15,000-member milestone. That’s a huge number and speaks volumes about what alumni want. You want to stay connected to the UW and to each other. LinkedIn makes that easy for career minded graduates.
A special thanks to our partner Keoke Silvano, a re-entry counselor at the UW’s Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity. He founded the Alumni Group on LinkedIn and later teamed with the UW Alumni Association to grow it into a force for Huskies online.
In recognition of the 15,000 members who are making this group the resource it is today, our team wanted to share a few submissions from your fellow alums and others in the UW community that tell the story of what LinkedIn is about.
I’m a Husky alum living in enemy territory (Eugene, OR)! Just getting started with LinkedIn and would like to show my support of the DAWGS!

I met my wife at UW. My daughter Jenny, brother Michael and sister-in-law Diane are all UW grads. I am the Dawg Pack leader for my family. I volunteer at University of Washington Medical Center in the patient/family Intensive Care Unit. Had a heart transplant at UWMC and owe so much of my life experiences to UW. Go Dawgs!
