    An all-new MyUW is coming this summer, with personal and relevant information for faculty and staff, and easier access to important resources. Instructors will see an enhanced Teaching page to better support their quarterly workflow, such as improved email list management, and closer integration with GradePage for submitting final grades at the end of the quarter. Already available for students since 2015, this summer, faculty and staff will get an improved, modern and mobile-friendly MyUW experience too.

    Global map

    A new interactive publicly available global map uses data visualizations to demonstrate the University’s engagement around the world. The online map hosted on UW-IT’s Tableau server extracts key datasets from  the UW’s Enterprise Data Warehouse and displays them in a visual format to convey information. UW-IT helped build the architecture that supports the global map and provided quality assurance, security and data governance.

    MyUW for students on laptop

    MyUW offers new features, and coming this summer, the tool will be even easier to navigate. Now MyUW includes Google search and shows you the major or minor in which you’ve been admitted. Next up, MyUW's navigation will take undergraduate students to important areas, such as Academics, Profile, Accounts, and Husky Card, which means much less scrolling to find what you need. Quick Links will list the most popular resources, plus those you’ve recently used, and you can customize the list too.
