The School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics was approved by the University of Washington Board of Regents in 2013 in response to the need for a greater number of STEM graduates to meet the demands of industry in Washington state. UW Bothell combines all of the STEM fields in one academic area, allowing for cross-disciplinary training and project work.
The School of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) will be a leader in providing accessible, innovative, and effective education and research that promotes responsible engagement with our world and society.
Our mission is to support and promote excellence in STEM research, scholarship, and education through commitment to our core values.
Our core values are
COLLABORATION across disciplines and among students, faculty, staff, and community partners,
OPPORTUNITIES for all students to succeed and become effective critical thinkers,
RIGOR in the development of research that is globally recognized and serves our students and society, and
ENGAGEMENT through challenging and active learning experiences and enriching student-faculty interactions.
