The Office of Research

""

Our mission

The faculty student experience is paramount at UW Bothell and due to the nature of being a primarily undergraduate institution, faculty have competing priorities and limited time.  Therefore, UW Bothell’s Office of Research offers support to advance their research agenda and maximize their community impact while creating conditions for faculty student connections.

PacSci Summer Camps with UW Bothell

UW Bothell Office of Research demonstrates commitment to inspiring the next generation by partnering with Pacific Science Center to bring high quality children's summer camps to campus. UW Bothell staff and researchers also develop camps for Pacific Science Center to offer at many locations in the Puget Sound area. This year's new camp has a special Bothell twist on art and science: Caws and Effect, a camp focused on crows and ravens for fourth and fifth graders. Read more about the camps and register.

The Office of Research is implementing processes to help faculty members develop “impact identities”. The generation of their Broader Impact (BI) Legacy narrative involves a reflective process in which each faculty member examines integration of scholarship with societal needs, personal preferences, capacities and skills, and institutional contexts.

At the college and institutional levels, impact identities and Broader Impact Legacy work help to develop strategic connections between disciplines and partners.   Read more about developing your broader impact legacy.

If you are looking for ways to enhance your education, pad your resume, or just be a part of amazing projects, we recommend getting involved with research! Freshman and first-year transfer students are encouraged to get involved the first quarter they arrive. Research can help students develop new skills and passions, lead to awards and scholarships, and improve learning in the classroom.

""UW Bothell Herbarium

The UW Bothell Herbarium provides a critical authoritative record of plants occurring in the campus wetland and the greater North Creek Basin. As the vegetation changes through time in the wetland it will form a reliable record to help us and future researchers understand biological and habitat change in one of our regions’ preeminent floodplain restoration projects.
 
In 2016, the Office of Research began supporting the herbarium efforts. By teaming up with the Burke Herbarium (UW Seattle), the collection will be accessible online in late 2017. Please contact Sarah Verlinde (severlin@uw.edu) if you’re interested in donating, volunteering, studying, or taking a tour.
 
 

 

UW Bothell Clean Room""

The University of Washington Bothell is one of the only universities in the area offering the unique feature of a clean room. A clean room has low levels of environmental pollutants such as dust, airborne microbes, aerosol particles, and chemical vapors - making it vital to manufacturing. At UW Bothell, you'll find many of our electrical engineering undergraduates, graduates, and certificate students in the clean room, learning with hands-on training in a real-world work setting.
