Spring 2020 Resources

While our communities face the effects of the coronavirus pandemic and the disruptions caused by efforts to combat it, we need to keep up with emerging information and many need additional resources and support.

The sheer amount of information can be hard to navigate, so we’re posting a few of the most comprehensive collections of resources at UW here for you to use as a starting point. Each of these links contains many more links on a wide variety of topics.

If you have trouble finding what you’re looking for, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Philosophy Advising. We will do our best to assist you in finding what you need on campus.

Additionally, Washington 211 is a good resource to connect with statewide resources off campus.
