Student Announcements

CONGRATS to all our DRS graduating students. We are proud of you and all your accomplishments! Best of luck with your future endeavors! If you need accommodations for commencement, you need to request accommodations through the Commencement office.

The UW is proud to uphold the recent Washington state legislative effort to improve our campus climate. As one component of Senate Bill 5227, UW will host listening sessions to understand better the current learning, working, and living environments for UW students. At this time, we invite UW undergraduate students to participate in a 90-minute virtual listening session to share their experiences. Check out: UW Listening Sessions for more!
