Empowering the Whole Husky to Thrive at UW and Beyond

At UW Student Life, we empower students to thrive in the classroom, workplace, community, and beyond. We provide a lifeline during the tough times and a launchpad for each student’s unique and limitless potential.

During a time marked by uncommon challenges, we have been able to adapt and deliver unprecedented and innovative wraparound support for students who, along with their families, are navigating extraordinary trials and complexities.

Our work empowers students of all backgrounds and means to not only persist, but thrive during college, and emerge as leaders in our communities. Our work prepares students to navigate complex and rapidly-evolving industries and an interconnected world. Our work supports the health and emotional well-being of students, equipping them with lifelong skills and resilience.

In short, our work supports the “whole Husky” to ensure their success and well-being during college and in their lives beyond. Supporting this work makes a lasting difference for the academic, professional, and personal trajectory of UW students, and ultimately for the health and prosperity of our communities.
