University of Washington Bothell

Academic Affairs

Turning UW Bothell's educational philosophy into action

The Office of Academic Affairs (OAA) creates and administers a structure in which steps can be taken to execute our university’s mission and vision. In these efforts, we oversee the development and implementation of academic policies and procedures, and we coordinate academic programs, administration and organizational structures.

Although we are dedicated to strengthening the academic experience for the entire UW Bothell community, this site is intended primarily for faculty and staff engaged in teaching and learning, academic programs, research and scholarship, as well as faculty hiring, promotion and development.

We are deeply engaged in developing a strong but flexible infrastructure that will support a wide range of scholarly activities and community partnerships. We work hard to strengthen connections among UW Bothell's academic schools and programs, as well as between the campus, other educational institutions, organizations and the greater community.

We are here to support your teaching, scholarship and research efforts in any way we can. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions, concerns or suggestions:
