Join a Husky Leadership Initiative project committee!


The Husky Leadership Initiative (HLI) is a cross-campus effort that facilitates, deepens and expands student leadership education both in and outside the classroom. HLI is committed to supporting students’ leadership development journeys as they cultivate the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to be effective change agents and contributing members in their communities. We believe that collaboration amongst the many leadership education efforts across campus will collectively strengthen our ability to make student leadership education more accessible, explicit and comprehensive.  Please join us in this effort!

The Husky Leadership Initiative (HLI) currently seeks faculty and staff members to serve on the 2016-2017 Husky Leadership Initiative project committees.

Specific committee meeting times will be determined once committee membership is finalized.

“Telling Our Stories: Neah Bay”

Image result for "Telling Our Stories: Neah Bay"

Are you interested in immersing yourself in the beauty and richness of the Makah culture? Do you love working with elementary school students? Do you want a deep, engaging, non-traditional learning experience in Washington State?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, consider applying for the “Telling Our Stories: Neah Bay” project via a partnership between the UW’s Pipeline Project and Neah Bay Elementary School. During the 2016-2017 school year, a small group of UW students will take part in a year-long project with students from this Native community. Using oral histories, digital storytelling, and photography, UW students will learn about the rich history and culture of the Makah people while mentoring 5th-6th grade students to create a digital storytelling project to celebrate their own Native culture.

Note that this project will require a 3-quarter commitment as well as a 2 week partnership experience during September in Neah Bay. Students will travel to Neah Bay during one of these weeks. There will be a weekly seminar during autumn, winter, and spring quarters that all students will attend. Students will also travel to Neah Bay during Spring Break.

There are no fees (besides tuition) for this amazing opportunity, and students will earn up to 12 EDUC401 credits. Applications and resumes are due on Catalyst Tuesday May 31, 2016 at 5:00pm. The application questions are attached to this email.

Student Health Priorities Survey

Hello UW students,

My name is Mitchell Chen and I’m the Director of Diversity Efforts with the student government here at UW.  We’re partnering with Hall Health and other health-related entities on campus to conduct a Student Health Priorities Survey.  We wanted to gauge how underrepresented and marginalized students felt about health services on campus and get feedback on how to improve.  The survey will guide Hall Health, the Counseling Center, and other entities on future strategic plans.

We are asking for feedback from students and the survey can be found here:

It’s due this Friday at 11:59pm.  Hall Health is also offering a free IPad as a raffle for students who have taken the survey.  If you input your e-mail at the end of the survey (no attempt will be made to identify you), you’ll automatically be entered in the drawing.

Thank you so much!!

Students for a National Health Program – event

Policy 101

Are you a pre-health student wondering how you can set yourself apart from a crowd of applicants? Are you wondering what’s going to happen once you’re off your parents’ insurance? Do you sympathize with the millions of uninsured or underinsured citizens in the US? There’s a reason the healthcare debate has come to the forefront in the upcoming presidential election, but you need to seek out the information to understand the issues!

The most common shortfall of pre-health students in their applications and interviews is a lack of understanding of the healthcare system. Regardless of whether it’s as a nurse, physician, administrator or public health official, it is imperative to understand the environment in order to better serve people.

You can slog through the 1,990 pages of the Affordable Care Act yourself, or you can sit back and enjoy some pizza while our officers sum it up (as well as the nation’s health care situation in general) in easy-to-understand language. Learn how you can become an officer for the upcoming year, and how you can get involved with the fight for an economically and ethically improved healthcare system!
