About Us


For more than 100 years, Continuum College has championed unique learning opportunities at the University of Washington. We are an innovator in continuing education and believe education is a continuous necessity that should be obtainable to all learners throughout their lives. That’s why we use collaboration and creativity to solve problems. And why we always keep an eye out for what’s possible.


UW Continuum College expands the University of Washington’s educational impact by meeting the needs of learners wherever they are in life — and wherever they intend to go.

We provide relevant educational experiences, delivering the right programs for the right people at the right time so that anyone can access the knowledge they need through the University of Washington to have a greater impact in the world.


At Continuum College, we believe everyone deserves education to thrive in an ever-changing world. And we believe diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging are fundamental to our mission. From the students we serve to the staff and instructors we employ, we are committed to creating a diverse community where each person feels welcome, included, accepted and on equal ground with one another.

Addressing systemic inequity takes each of us – and all of us. Each person brings visible and invisible qualities and a unique perspective and experience that, together, open new possibilities and give our work new meaning. Education has the power to change lives and promote positive change toward an antiracist society that is grounded in social equity. We embrace working together to generate positive social impact and to ensure the communities we serve attain the education they need to create new opportunities.

The University of Washington acknowledges that we live and work on the land of the Duwamish and Coast Salish people, land which touches the shared waters of all tribes and bands within the Suquamish, Tulalip and Muckleshoot nations.


Everyone deserves education to thrive in an ever-changing world.
