Community Makers will feature stories on our social media platforms; sharing current projects you are working on, personal goals, how you got to where you are, influences that have shaped you, and anything else you feel is important to share.We know that diversity and the pursuit of excellence in teaching & research are inextricably linked, and we hope you will consider taking part in this project to represent who UW Engineers are.

If you have any questions or concerns about the project, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
