  • Please review our Information About COVID-19 resource page for the most up to date facts and information about how COVID-19 continues to impact learning University-wide. The UW is working hard to make your remote experience the best it can be. Your part in that is to take care of yourself, reconnect with the energy and drive that first brought you to UW, and take an active part in forming our collective response to the pandemic and our course forward.  Please take care and reach out if there is anything we can do to support you.
