Did you know that undergraduate underrepresented minorities only make up 8% of the College of Engineering? We are here to change that! We have been invited by UW Society of Hispanic Engineers and the UW College of Engineering to network with students and provide engineering application advice. Don’t worry if you have no experience writing college applications! UW Staff will be there to provide a quick how to session for us. The main importance is being able to coach the students on written communication skills and provide guidance to them.

We hope you can make it!

Invitation to Write an Article

Dear SHPE PSC Members,

My name is Bruna Estrada and I am a member of the University of Washington School of Law’s Education Law and Policy Society (Ed-Law). We are an organization that has been working to address the legal issues in education since 2010, and this year are publishing the second volume of our journal style publication . Through this forum we seek to encourage discussion on education issues that impact all Washingtonians.

We publish the work of scholars, attorneys, students (K-12 and higher education), parents, teachers, school administrators, and all those who are impacted by education policies in Washington. With the release of our first volume in April of 2015, we kicked off an exciting new project for Ed-Law. Please check out the online version of our publication at

Launch Event: Click Here

This year we hope to collect papers from academic sources and students, and short reflections from acting legislators, judges, and policy organizations who have unique insight into the development of education policy in Washington. We are hoping you or someone in your office would consider contributing. Please see the attached “call for papers” for more details.

We are a non-partisan organization and welcome contributions from any organization or individual regardless of party affiliation. Our goal is to grow with each year and would be excited to include a contribution from you in our second volume of the Ed-Law publication.

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out. As mentioned the attached call for papers can provide more information on submission. Thank you for your time and consideration.

YUPSMentor 2015:

Good morning SHPE PSC,

I hope this message finds you well!

My name is Anna Servin and I am the Volunteer Specialist at Year Up Puget Sound. We are a nonprofit organization that works with young adults that have been disconnected from the economic mainstream, providing them with education, job training and a 6 month internship with our corporate partners.


One aspect of a Year Up student’s journey is being paired with a professional mentor that supports them while they learn to navigate the professional landscape. Year Up mentors come from all walks of life and have various professional backgrounds. However, I am working to recruit more mentors that reflect how diverse our students are.

I’m writing to you today to ask if becoming a Year Up mentor is an opportunity that members of your group would be interested in.

The time commitment is flexible and mentoring is a great way to get involved and have an impact on the professional youth in Seattle.

If you would like to learn more, I would be happy to find time to come present to your group or schedule time chat one on one.

I’ve attached some more information about our program and the volunteer opportunities that we offer as well.

Please feel free to call my work phone number below if you have questions.

Thank you for your time and I hope that we can get (BLANK) excited about Year Up mentoring.
