You’re Invited: 2nd Annual Calling Home Ceremony


There are over 1,800 current student veterans across our three campuses who currently call the University of Washington home, in addition
to the countless alumni who have served. For many who came to UW after military service, campus was not always a welcoming place to be a
veteran. We as a society and a campus are working to better honor and integrate returning military members with the communities they
served. To the many for whom this has been a reality, this program welcomes you home to the UW family.

The “Calling Home” ceremony pays homage to the American Indian and Alaska Native tradition of embracing and celebrating those returning
from uniformed service. As service members transition to their new identity as a veteran, the tribe willingly accepts the burden of
responsibility as a collective.

Let no warrior carry the burden of coming home on their own. The University of Washington accepts the responsibility to walk with members
of the military community on their new journey.

Join Student Veteran Life and the Intellectual House for this unique event celebrating our Husky Veterans from all generations, honor their
service, and call them home to the University of Washington! Don’t miss your chance to hear from a powerful lineup, including UW
President, Ana Mari Cauce.

Attendees who RSVP below by October 3rd will be given free campus parking for the event.

ONRC Presentation on Tuesday August 15th

The Wave of the Future: Tidal Energy

Washington Sea Grant Marine Renewable Energy Seminar

Tuesday, Aug. 15th, 7:00 pm 9:00 p.m.

FORKS, WA- The crash of breaking waves and the relentless motion of the tides speak to the powerful forces at work in the ocean—forces that could be used to produce electricity. What is the outlook for technologies that seek to generate power from, or on the sea? Learn more about the future of this potential energy source at a Washington Sea Grant Marine Renewable Energy Seminar.

What: Washington Sea Grant Marine Renewable Energy Seminar

When: Tues., Aug. 15, 7:00 pm 9:00 p.m.

Where: UW Olympic Natural Resource Center – 1455 S. Forks Avenue, Forks.

A panel of experts from the University of Washington Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center (NNMREC) will discuss the ocean’s potential contribution to future energy needs at the Olympic Natural Resources Center in Forks, WA. This seminar will cover current marine renewable energy (MRE) technologies, and what forces are likely to shape MRE development in the U.S., particularly off the Pacific Northwest coast. The panel will present the environmental, social and engineering challenges (and opportunities!), as well as current research to understand and proactively address these issues.

This unique seminar offers community members the opportunity to learn from and ask questions of experts, and hear different perspectives about the potential benefits of MRE development for coastal communities, and its compatibility with existing ocean uses. The evening will highlight some of the expertise that exists at the UW, and support informed public engagement in possible future decisions about MRE.

UW NNMREC Director Brian Polagye will share why he thinks nearshore industrial-scale wave and wind energy development is unlikely to happen for decades, but how smaller-scale technologies could potentially help power coastal communities and support economic development in the near term. Also presenting will be UW graduate students Hannah Ross, with an overview of the many ways energy can be harvested from wind, waves and currents, and Molly Grear, an expert on the potential impacts of MRE development to marine mammals.

The seminar is organized by Washington Sea Grant (WSG), based at the University of Washington’s College of the Environment and is presented by WSG in partnership with the UW Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center, the North Pacific Coast Marine Resources Committee, with support from the Rosmond Forestry Education Fund, an endowment that honors the contributions of Fred Rosmond and his family to forestry and collegiate education for the Forks community.

For information about the seminar, contact Meg Chadsey, Washington Sea Grant,, 206-616-1538. Event flyer and agenda available on the WSG website:

STEM & Social Science Majors: NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Info Sessions

Together with the Graduate School’s Office of Fellowships and Awards, we are offering 3 information sessions to help prepare students for the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP) application. This fellowship program is for undergraduates/bachelor’s level alums and first year graduate students who plan to pursue research-based Master’s and doctoral degree programs in Social Science, STEM fields or STEM Education & Learning Research. The GRFP especially encourages members of underrepresented minority groups, women, persons with disabilities and veterans to apply.

About the program:

· Selected students benefit from a three-year annual stipend of $34,000 along with a $12,000 cost of education allowance for tuition and fees.

· Fellows also have opportunities for international research and professional development.

· Last year, 2,000 students were offered an award, or approximately 1 out of every 6.5 applicants.

· Due to a recent eligibility change, the program now limits current graduate students to only one application to the GRFP, submitted either in their first year or in the second year of graduate school.

· We expect that the program solicitation and application will be released in late summer.
