Community Connections

Sign up for Huskies@Work!

mentors and students video chatting

More than ever, students need connections to help them explore what their career paths could look like after graduation. That’s where alumni come in. Huskies@Work matches up alumni and students for one-time, low-commitment online talks about careers. It’s an easy and rewarding way for Huskies to connect!

Huskies@Work conversations happen twice each year, in May and November. Once alumni and students are matched, they arrange a time and format (video chat, phone) that works best for them.

Applications for students and alumni close April 14th, learn more here. 

Go Dawgs, go! Register for Dawg Dash!

UWAA’s annual Alaska Airlines Dawg Dash goes virtual April 17 & 18, 2021. This marks the 35th year of this beloved run/walk that raises funds to support UW student scholarships.

This year’s non-traditional, first-ever virtual event makes it possible for participants to chart their own courses and promises to reach new audiences throughout the state of Washington and beyond. From students, families and their dogs to athletes and folks just eager to get their bodies moving, everyone can participate at their own pace on their own time while celebrating the purple and gold.

Registrations are available for adults, children and, new this year – dogs.  Race packets are available for shipment or curbside pickup locations in the Puget Sound area.
