Office of Government Relations

Engage UW



Engage UW is the on-campus grassroots arm of the ASUW Office of Government Relations (OGR). Volunteers work with the OGR to promote civic engagement, participate in political advocacy, and foster an environment of increased political participation on campus.

The students are the most important stakeholders at this university. We work to raise awareness of what students can do to influence the political process. We are concerned primarily with issues specific to University of Washington students, including reducing the cost of higher-education, fully-funding the State Need Grant, and reducing the price of textbooks.

We work to make political change accessible by bringing the policy process to campus. It is our goal to ensure that all students are registered to vote and know how to contact their legislators. In addition, we provide the resources for students to learn more about the politics and institutions of their community.

Participation in politics is a defining aspect of civic engagement. By promoting political activism on campus, we strive to foster a generation of engaged citizens.


Meetings for Spring Quarter 2017 will be every Thursday beginning April 6 from 4:30-5:30 in HUB 214. Any changes to this schedule will be posted on the OGR Facebook page.


We are not currently recruiting volunteers at this time. Check back early in the 2017-2018 school year to get involved.
