What does it mean to be Filipinx/Filipino/Filipina/Pinoy/Pinay in Seattle and the United States?

In this class, we will collectively explore the landscape of being Filipinx American by studying some history (particularly how schooling has been used to teach Eurocentric values under the guise of “liberty” and “progress” while labeling anything Filipino as “uncivilized”), talking about what makes us who we are (race, ethnicity, gender, sexual identity, social class), and making art (collages, creative blogging, photography, poetry, etc.)! Everyone is welcome; the only thing you need is a desire to know more about what it means to be Filipinx.  

This is a 2-credit C/NC class which does NOT have a K-12 tutoring component. It fulfills I&S requirements.

For this seminar, the number of credits a student receives depends on the number of tutoring hours completed in addition to seminar attendance. Credit and tutoring requirements are as follows:

  • 3 credits*: 2.5 hours tutoring/week (at least 20 hours tutoring/quarter)
  • 4 credits: 5 hours tutoring/week (at least 40 hours tutoring/quarter)
  • 5 credits: 7.5 hours tutoring/week (at least 60 hours tutoring/quarter)
  • 6 credits**: 10 hours tutoring/week (at least 80 hours tutoring/quarter)

*A Student may opt to register for 1 or 2 credits if it means avoiding an additional registration fee.

** Students can only enroll for a max of 6 credits total per Quarter when tutoring for the Pipeline Project. Need more Credits still? Email pipeline@uw.edu and we will do our best to accommodate you

If you need to make up tutoring hours for a circumstance out of your control (school closure, holiday) you can complete an online assignment. Each assignment is worth two tutoring hours.
