Deadline: Climate survey closes on November 8, 2019 at 11:59 p.m., PST.
If you have yet to take the UW’s campus climate survey, you still have time! It is vitally important that you take the time to share your experiences in order to improve the University of Washington now and for many years to come. If you think that it is important that your voice is heard, make sure you fill out this survey because the UW is at risk of not having enough student participation and therefore not enough student perspective.

iSchool Research Symposium: Lasting Impacts: A Panel with Three Recent iSchool Award Winners
Monday, November 4, 2019 12:30 pm to 1:20 pm Bloedel 070 Zoom Room
This past year, the iSchool dean and two professors earned lasting impact awards for their research. On this panel, each will discuss the thought process that went into selecting their specific research projects. They will talk about whether they thought these topics would have a lasting impact at the time they formulated their ideas for the projects, or whether lasting impact is something that “just happens.” Do researchers have ways at the inception of their projects to amplify the long-term impacts of their research?
