UW Pipeline Project

About Us

Who We Are:

The Pipeline Project is a K-12 outreach program that connects undergraduate students from the University of Washington with educational and service opportunities in local and regional schools and community organizations through tutoring and mentoring. The Pipeline Project is housed inĀ The Center for Experiential Learning and Diversity.

Our Mission:

Through the Pipeline Project, UW undergraduates provide K-12 students with tutoring, mentorship and support as a means of transforming the learning and inspiring the growth of both groups of students, while addressing inequities in public education in Washington State.

Our Vision:

  • The Pipeline Project will strengthen its powerful connections to students, faculty, staff, and community partners.
  • The Project will offer K-12 outreach opportunities to every UW undergraduate who desires them and will nurture and support all UW students who initiate their own local, regional, and international K-12 educational projects.
  • The Project will help UW departments and units seeking closer connections to the K-12 experience to implement them.
  • The Project will ensure strong, vital, and reciprocal relationships with K-12 school and community partners who value such relationships.
  • The work of the Pipeline Project will function as a tiered mentoring system, where Project staff mentor upper level undergraduates, who mentor entering undergraduates, who, in turn, mentor K-12 students.
  • The values of diversity, inclusion and equity are infusedĀ into every aspect of staffing, recruitment, and programming at the Pipeline Project.
