UW Athletics has an active sustainability program that engages with the campus and surrounding community on many levels. This includes UW student-athletes, who use their voices and outreach to promote sustainability though a variety of platforms. The Student Athletes at UW for Sustainability (SAUWS) group was formed in 2019 with the intent to organize student-athletes to complete projects that make an impact in the athletic village, on campus or in our surrounding community.

As part of the Biomedical Engineering Society at the University of Washington, we founded an annual mentorship program centered around educational equity. Our mentorship program aims to not only create a mentorship ecosystem throughout the department of engineering and UW College of Engineering, but also aims to make a career in engineering and bioengineering accessible for students of all backgrounds. We hope that by inspiring, supporting, and preparing future students for potential careers in engineering and STEM, we will leave a lasting impact on the future of bioengineering.
ISAUW is a 501(c)(3) non-profit cultural organization dedicated to promoting the diverse Indonesian culture to the communities in the Greater Seattle area. ISAUW’s vision is to become the leading Indonesian Student Association in the United States. We aim to achieve this by building a respectful, well-rounded, diverse, yet nationalistic young Indonesian community in the Greater Seattle Area and in the United States. Established for over ten years, ISAUW would like to carry on and improve the legacy of our previous years and hold the most successful Keraton Indonesian Festival to date.

The UW Farm supplies the UW Food Pantry and greater community with produce each year, but as the climate changes, the increasing discrepancy between demand during the academic year and the summer growing season is resulting in inadequate supply. Climate impacts to the UW campus are already felt by the Farm, in the form of extremes of moisture, heat, and cold that reduce crop output: in 2020 inclement weather spoiled over 1,800 pounds of produce at the UW Farm, roughly 15% of their annual production.
