A winding path to racial and educational justice

From a student to an advocate seeking justice in race and education, Ayva Thomas marked her journey with the perspective-driven experience at UW Bothell. She aimed to conduct diversity and inclusive learning for students to work with various communities, empowering the establishment of programs like the North Star Mentorship and the implementation of ethnic studies in the Northshore School District. 

Community-Engaged Learning and Research (CELR) provides several research and service opportunities for UW Bothell students to collaborate with campus and community programs. The courses focus on creating hands-on, reflective, and skill-building experiences for students to apply theory to practice, develop professional experience, and contribute to the public good.
