The University of Washington’s campaign, Be Boundless—For Washington, For the World, is in its final months, and the School has surpassed its ambitious goal. As of May 2020, we raised more than $73.4 million, exceeding our $70 million campaign target—the largest on record for a school of social work at a public university. 

“Our campaign’s success is due in great measure to the leadership and hard work of our campaign committee: Co-chairs Lynn Behar and Seán O’Leary and committee members Anne Deacon Anderson, Trinese Clark, Norman Johnson, Janice Sabin and Amnon Schoenfeld,” says Dean Eddie Uehara. “We are deeply grateful to all our donors for their commitment to transforming the student experience, serving the public good and deepening social impact.”
