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.
