"We Love our Graduate & Professional Students!"
The Graduate Advisors hosted a very successful event for all graduate students on February 12, 2014. This was a great opportunity to continue our efforts to improve graduate community on our campus. David Lile of ASUWB was there to learn more about graduate student needs and to promote the upcoming Focus Group. Sarah Leadley and Miram Bartha were there to promote the Project Flash Talks! and encourage stubmissions. Over 50 students attended and were able to connect with fellow graduate students, learn about the Graduate Hub. Thank you to all who were able to attend!

UWB Names First Don Whitney Memorial Scholar
For her outstanding academic performance and lifelong leadership in community service, University of Washington Bothell MBA student Jen Landry becomes the first recipient of the Don Whitney Memorial Scholarship, which is awarded through the university’s School of Business.
Landry and the community she serves are now beneficiaries of the graduate program that Whitney poured his life into. “I think UW Bothell is providing me with tools to expand the impact of my service,” she says. “I think there can be a disconnect in understanding between the non-profit and business communities, even though the work they do is intrinsically linked. Being asked difficult questions in class regarding ethics, oppression, etc. as it affects managers in a wide array of industries has stretched me in surprising ways.” Read more in the November 13 Press Release.
