Beyond the Selfie|-Spring Celebration of Service & Leadership

University of Washington students see the bigger picture. They expand definitions and break barriers. They take what they learn in the classroom and apply it to their communities. Through service and leadership, students look beyond themselves and see something greater.

As a UW student, how do you look beyond the selfie? Share your service and leadership work at the Spring Celebration of Service and Leadership on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 from 2:00-6:30 p.m. in the Husky Union Building (HUB).(Please note that students are encouraged to attend the entire event, but the time commitment for the Gallery will be approximately an hour and fifteen minutes between 2:45 and 5:30)

The annual Spring Celebration event provides students across the UW Seattle campus with the opportunity to showcase the many ways they are engaging in leadership and service. As part of the gallery, students present their engagement through a poster display and discuss their service and leadership experiences with other students, faculty, community partners, civic and university leaders.

Benefits of participation include:
  • Sharing your valuable service and leadership work with a diverse audience
  • Connecting with other students doing interesting and meaningful work on campus and in the community
  • Receiving feedback regarding your project and presentation
  • Building your experience and resume
UW alum Bryan Dosono said this about the Spring Celebration, “I liked how the Spring Celebration of Service and Leadership allowed me to showcase my projects to the community. It was also a great way to find out about other opportunities that my peers have initiated within the University District and the greater Seattle area.”

All UW undergraduate students are invited to apply for the gallery of student projects. Applications will be reviewed as they are received and projects are accepted on a space available basis.
