SA Development

The Office of Student-Athlete Development strives to inspire, engage and advance student-athletes through life skills and diversity and inclusion programming. The student-athlete development curriculum includes programming to assist with each student's transition from high school to college, develop them personally, engage them with campus and teach student-athletes the skills to be successful in life after sports.

The Office of Student-Athlete Development focuses on five different content areas. All student-athletes will progress through UW's Student-Athlete Development Curriculum. There are 5 content areas in the curriculum and each student-athlete is required to complete one designated event or workshop per year. In addition to required events, programming is offered in all five content areas and student-athletes voluntarily participate in these programs to enhance their UW student-athlete experience. .

5 Content Areas:
