Office of Development and Alumni Relationships

The overarching goal of The Office of Development and Alumni Relations at the University of Washington Bothell is to successfully promote involvement with and build strong sources of dependable funding from alumni and friends for scholarship, faculty, and programming support and for UW Bothell's future. This goal will be achieved through active fund-raising and external relations programming that provide meaningful and lasting relationships with alumni and friends of the campus. Working with UW Seattle Development and Alumni Relations, faculty, staff, and students, the UW Bothell Development and Alumni Office collaborates to develop key strategies for cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of donors and friends.

UW Bothell Alumni Relations programming plays a vital role in keeping young alumni connected to UW Bothell after they graduate. In addition, we strive to keep established and future prospects connected to the campus by informing them of UW Bothell's priorities and accomplishments, which will hopefully engage them as potential contributors.

In many ways, we look at Alumni Relations activities as "friend-raising." It is through "friend-raising" activities, that "fund-raising" occurs. Our donors and friends to UW Bothell are dedicated to the mission of the campus and to helping students reach their potential and educational goals. For further information, please contact the Development and Alumni office at (425) 352-5269.

Disability Support Services

Students with disabilities are invited and encouraged to discuss their needs with a counselor in Disability Support Services (DSS). Documentation of the disability will be required according to the specifications of the University of Washington system before any accommodations can be arranged. We ask that students requesting services contact DSS at least six weeks prior to the beginning of the quarter. To speak with a DSS counselor, please stop by LBA 106 or call (425) 352-5307.

Educational accommodations are designed to meet the individual needs of the student based on their specific disability. Our goal is to fully comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Library Services

The Campus Library serves students, faculty, and staff of the University of Washington, Bothell and Cascadia Community College. The Library houses course-related periodicals, books, and audiovisual materials, and provides access to the over five-million volumes housed at the University of Washington Libraries in Seattle and Tacoma, as well as the collections of 27 academic libraries in Oregon and Washington.

One of the main features of the Campus Library is the Information Commons, which offers state-of-the-art technology and provides access to on-line, CD-ROM, and web-based resources, including full-text journals. Students, faculty, and staff, with their own computers, can access many of these resources remotely, via the internet. Students can use the computers in the Information Commons to perform a variety of tasks, from searching the Library catalog and databases to writing papers and creating spreadsheets.

Librarians offer reference services in the Information Commons and are available by appointment for more extended consultations. Information and technology literacy are important features of the curricula of both institutions, and librarians teach workshops and class sessions and collaborate with faculty to integrate these skills into courses in all disciplines and programs.
