Chancellor Mark A. Pagano

The University of Washington Tacoma is one of the premier urban-serving universities and one of the fastest-growing public, master's-granting institutions in the nation. We are one of three UW campuses, and are proud to provide access to an excellent UW experience for citizens of the South Sound and beyond.

Whether you are the first in your family to attend college or following a family tradition of higher education, I welcome you to the Tacoma Husky family!
