UW Impact: Stronger Together

The challenges we face during the COVID-19 pandemic have reminded Huskies that we are stronger together, which is we invite you to stay connected to your UW community now more than ever.

Not sure where to start? The UW Alumni Association has a variety of digital programs to help you expand your knowledge and stay engaged with the University. Visit Stronger Together, a popular new resource for all homebound alums.

Huskies have always and continue to uphold the University’s values of courage, kindness, creativity, and innovation. To read more about how our community is coming together and learn about what you can do to help, visit the UW’s Together page.
