Building Community Through Food and Storytelling — Call for recipes !

What is one food or food dish that represents your identity? How does this food item embrace and/or showcase who you are? Created by students for the Husky communitythe Husky Cookbook is a collection of recipes and food stories gathered from UW students, staff, and faculty. The project aims to unite members across the broader UW community through food and their stories told through food.

Not only is food a way to break barriers and build relationships, but it’s also a way in which stories of culture and traditions are shared. Through print and online mediums, this Husky Cookbook aims to showcase the diverse members of our UW community, foster a sense of community by encouraging dialogue on how our identities are shaped by food traditions and culture, and promote cooking and sharing of meals.

Follow us on Facebook and/or Instagram to stay up to date on the project and for details about our Cookbook Launch Event in the Spring!

Eligibility: UW student (undergraduate, graduate or professional), faculty and staff from all campuses are encouraged to apply.

Steps to Submit to the Husky Cookbook:

  • Choose one food item/dish that highlights and showcases your identity; this is open to your interpretation (your cultural identity, upbringing/background, preferences/values, etc.).
  • Submit a clear, accurate and reproducible recipe of the food item/dish. Original and/or family recipes are welcomed, but not mandatory. If you find a recipe online or in a printed source, please provide a reference.
  • Submit a 100 to 150-word response that addresses how the food item/dish represents your identity. This is a creative writing response. Please let your voice shine through!

Undergraduate Community-Based Internships (UCBI)


Undergraduate Community-Based Internships (UCBI), is a paid internship program that places undergraduates in non-profit and public sector organizations. Students interested in public service get the chance to explore, contribute, and grow as they work in, with, and for local communities.

Students work on-site with their host organizations 10 hours per week. Students spend an additional two hours each week with Carlson Center staff and fellow interns through one-on-one mentorship and cohort meetings. This cohort-based model allows students to learn in depth about social issues and reflect on power, privilege, identity, and systems of oppression.

B E 498 F / 598 F Cites on Screen 1-credit course has space available

Interested in cities and film? 1-credit course B E 498 F / 598 F Cites on Screen has space available!

BE 498 F | 598 F Cities on Screen is a 1-credit film series and seminar in the College of the Built Environment that offers design and planning students and other UW community members interested in the relationship of cinema and the city an opportunity to:

  • view feature films in their entirety
  • read authors who cogently help frame and give new perspectives on what we watch
  • discuss cinema and how it influences our perception and experience of the built environment.

The course meets alternate Friday afternoons starting Friday, September 27 from 3:30-5:50 PM in Gould 322 and is open to undergraduates and graduates in CBE and university-wide.

Film offers insights into how we construct, represent, document and navigate our social and built environments. At the same time, the virtual space of cinema influences our thinking, and by extension, our experience and design of both complex ideas and real places.

This fall quarter 2019, we explore the theme of “Black and White,” which denotes a film process and an aesthetic, as well as connoting confident assertions of certainty and more fraught attributions of real or perceived Otherness. “Black and White” conjures binaries and blurring, of truth and deception, of good and evil, documentary and drama, identity and indignity, conformity and difference; and imparts meaning and metaphor in the cinematic city around issues of race, gender and the so-called Other.
