Mission

Housed in the 16th century Renaissance tower of the Palacio del Conde Luna, the University of Washington Leon Center aims to foster interdisciplinary programs that will benefit from its unique location in the historic medieval center of Leon, Spain. By providing a space that can be used for study abroad programs, academic research, conferences, exhibits and cultural events, our goal is to create a resource that encourages understanding and compassion between cultures, and that will cultivate global citizens who are tolerant and respectful of cultural diversity, as well as who have a sense of themselves as responsible members of a global community.
