Partners and Affiliations

The Institute for Global Engagement (IGE) promotes a globally engaged university through collaborations and partnerships that connect the classroom to the world. It advances the University of Washington's imperative to be boundless, and adds momentum to UW Tacoma's strategic goal to advance global learning.
Solutions to our most compelling challenges are produced through diverse and interdisciplinary teams. Through dynamic community engagement, the IGE opens up UW Tacoma honors classrooms to a world of collaborative innovation.
Students connect to career opportunities through the Community Engagement Program, developed with the input of the IGE's high profile Community Advisory Board. The IGE's network also extends funded global learning opportunities to non-Honors students.

The Global Honors Program is the University of Washington Tacoma's interdisciplinary campus honors program, adding distinction to the bachelor's degree. Open to qualified students of all majors, it is designed to increase the depth and breadth of student understanding of critical global issues.
