In a series of messages yesterday, UW leaders communicated details about how spring quarter will progress at the University of Washington.
For all of us, this is an unprecedented time. As the virus that causes COVID-19 spreads throughout Washington and the United States, I know that it feels as if we are being overwhelmed with uncertainty. I am certainly experiencing this same feeling as well.
I want to assure you that all of the UW is unified in our work to ensure that we each have the best information available on how to protect ourselves and our community.
Today, Feb. 24, 2020, we notified U.S. Customs & Border Protection that we would not be hosting them at our All Industries Career Fair on Feb. 26.
We made this decision after careful deliberation and welcome feedback from students and faculty.
On Tuesday, we will unveil a new artwork on campus from renowned artist Gerard Tsutakawa. Titled Yantra, it is an eight-foot-tall bronze sculpture created as a representation of yin and yang—the complementary nature of opposites. Mr. Tsutakawa also created Maru, the memorial to Tacoma's Japanese Language School that sits at the north end of the Prairie Line Trail on campus and is well known for the Mitt sculpture at T-Mobile Park.
