By helping to create a college-going culture among our community’s youngest generation and preparing our future graduates for fulfilling careers, you will help ensure a new era of prosperity for us all.
The transformative power of UW Tacoma
THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF UW TACOMA
Five years ago, Tom Rochat, ’13, was foraging for mushrooms just to get by. Today, he’s on the fast track to senior-level management at a global IT company — and he credits it all to his time at UW Tacoma.
