UW Leaders is…

UW Leaders (UWL) is an entity within the  Associated Students of the University of Washington (ASUW). UWL offers leadership-building opportunities for first, second, and transfer third-year students. Whether students have been involved in past leadership or are looking to get started, UWL gives students the tools and support necessary to become the leader they want to be. We believe that Leaders are made not born, so every student has the potential to be a change-maker on campus and the greater Seattle are!

2019 Workshop Schedule TBD.

Check out last year’s workshops!
