Early Grads

Early grads, we want to hear from you!  IAS has launched a campaign to reconnect with our founding alumni (1991-2003) and invite you to engage with us!

Founding alumni

Since 1990, the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences (IAS) has provided access to a liberal arts education for more than 6,500 alumni. As early IAS graduates, you are the cornerstone of this legacy. You helped shape this campus and are an important part of our school history.

Tell your story

UW Bothell turns 30 in 2020. Help us celebrate nearly three decades of liberal arts education by sharing your memories, reflections, and where life has led you. IAS is collecting stories, photos, and other artifacts to showcase our history and the legacy of our early grads. Tell your story and check out our photo archive!
