Community engagement

Working with and for communities across Washington

As a regionally accountable public university, the University of Washington Bothell is committed to building and sustaining institutional and community partnerships designed to enhance student and faculty success and to support the well-being and prosperity of Washington state.

Through a wide community network, our diverse students, faculty, staff and administrative leadership focus on the goal of increasing the capacity of our region to identify and address local, national and global challenges.

Learn more about this priority in our mission statement; our current strategic plan, Expanding Access, Achieving Excellence; and our distinctive academic practices.

In 2020, UW Bothell received national recognition for its commitment and achievements in this area through the Carnegie Community Engagement Classification process. You can learn more about this initiative on UW Bothell’s Carnegie Classification webpage.
