The University of Washington

UW Tacoma campus was founded in 1990 with an interdisciplinary approach at its foundation. It has evolved into a thriving downtown campus that serves students of a wide variety of ages and backgrounds in the South Puget Sound. Faculty have access to the resources of a major research university, including an extensive library system, but work and teach within a small campus setting. Our campus provides a unique environment for the development of creative teaching, research, and community collaborations. The campus commitment to equity and inclusion is central to maintaining an atmosphere wherein students, staff, faculty, and residents find abundant opportunities for intellectual, personal, and professional growth of our campus and the broader community. UW Tacoma has an urban-serving mission, with access as a central value. More information about UW Tacoma and its strategic plan can be found here: https://www.tacoma.uw.edu/strategic-planning.

UW Tacoma faculty engage in teaching, research, and service and generally participate in the lower division, upper division, and graduate instruction.
