Workshop Overview

Sustainability: It’s in our nature.

Integrating Research,

Teaching and Operations

“The university of tomorrow is moving toward a new paradigm


certainly one of greater efficiency, but also one where innovation and
technology combine with hands
-
on, collaborative learning to give our
increasingly diverse student body an enhanced experience and to
dramatically expand the breadth and reach of our
research.

Tomorrow’s
university faces a world that is getting smaller and more
hyper
-
connected. That means the great societal challenges we face
require equally connected, integrative solutions.

The
UW is uniquely poised to bring the assets of the university to
the community to make a real and lasting difference in the world.
And most importantly, we can’t wait for tomorrow to arrive.

We
have to take on these challenges today
.”
