UW Impact <3’s the 509


UW Impact knows the purple pride of the 509. We even have affirming research that shows how far and wide the Husky love spreads here in Washington state.

Help us bring your 509 pride to Olympia! UW Impact is the UW Alumni Association’s legislative advocacy program in support of the UW and public higher education. Each legislative session, we make it easy for you to tell your lawmakers which UW priorities you want them to invest in, such as affordable tuition, top-notch education, and access to high-demand degree programs. Just last year, UW Impact’s community voices were instrumental in the passage of a stage budget reflecting the most significant investment in higher education in more than a decade.

This year, be one of our 509 advocates as we continue to champion higher education access and affordability for all Washingtonians. Join UW Impact and make your voice heard next legislative session and beyond – it’s the perfect way to represent the purple and the gold in Eastern WA!
