UW Bookstore Student Trustees

Now recruiting for University Book Store student trustees for 2023-2026

The University Book Store has been an integral part of UW for its students, faculty, and staff for over 120 years. Because of multiple graduating trustees this year, ASUW is actively looking for undergraduates to apply to be a trustee on the board. The U Book Store is going through some of the most dramatic changes in its history, and student trustees will play a vital role in the future of the Book Store. No experience is necessary, and students will learn about many facets of the Book Store’s business and development plans, including:

  • Community outreach and engagement
  • Revitalization of the U District
  • Real estate development
  • Public finance and non-profit partnerships
  • Campus partnerships across all academic and administrative units
  • Marketing and communications
  • Urban planning, transit, and campus + community needs

Student trustees should be able to serve a minimum of two years, and ideally three, to be able to understand the complexities of the roles and build trustee knowledge. Rising sophomores and juniors may apply, and putting this on your resume, LinkedIn page, and CV will be a highlight no matter what your plans are after graduation. The board meets September through June once a month in the evenings. The application can be found here: http://volunteer.asuw.org/  and directly linked here: https://forms.office.com/r/5weBKPvR88
