Guiding Principles

The space optimization work is guided by the same guiding principles developed in consultation with the community as part of the 2017 Campus Master Plan

As part of the space assessment, we revisited these principles to reconsider their meaning to our institution in the current context and to prioritize them. 

The principles serve to establish criteria by which the strategic solutions of the space optimization work are evaluated. 

Strategic priorities

In 2020, the University of Washington Bothell Chancellor announced the new UW Bothell strategic plan, focusing on three areas of strategic priority:

  • Strengthen Diversity and Equity
  • Enhance Community and Campus Engagement
  • Advance Cross-Disciplinary Teaching and Scholarship

The space assessment and optimization work engages with all three strategic priorities, focusing on the question of how space can help support and advance them.
