Tomorrow’s University Today
As a public university, we are committed to addressing the world’s most pressing challenges, as we have done throughout much of our 150-plus year history. Tomorrow’s University Today, the initiative President Michael K. Young introduced in his 2012 annual address, is all about continuing to develop multi-dimensional, integrative ideas and solutions to meet these challenges. Tomorrow’s University Today is an effort to broaden and deepen our impact on societal issues in three key areas:
Leading change in public higher education by providing transformational experiences that use technology to “flip” the classroom while ensuring accessibility and affordability. Turning the UW inside out to apply expertise to K–12 education, environmental sustainability and health care. Driving our economic future by propelling research and ideas out of our labs and into the economy where they will create jobs and improve lives.
