Discovery, creativity and knowledge

The UW offers students unique opportunities, rooted in our world-class faculty, to make discoveries, think in new ways and create knowledge.

Rather than simply learning existing knowledge, UW students are supported in making associations and exploring new ideas, and they benefit by becoming influential thinkers.

Diverse community

The UW seeks students from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences who will contribute to the University’s intellectual community.

UW students benefit from peers’ experiences and perspectives in the classroom and out, helping expand thought processes, supporting creativity, and building problem-solving skills.

Building relationships

The UW purposefully builds strong relationships with many dynamic and influential corporations, organizations and communities in the region and around the world.

UW students gain connections with a competitive advantage in life and career after college, becoming part of the world and its solutions, rather than living in an “ivory tower.”
