Shades of Purple

Shades of Purple is a one-day student conference for American Indian/Alaska Native and underrepresented minority high school seniors (Class of 2022) in Washington who are interested in attending the University of Washington in Seattle. This includes the following underrepresented minority groups: Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander (Melanesian, Micronesian, Polynesian, etc.), and Southeast Asian (Vietnamese, Lao, Khmer, Hmong, Mien, Burmese, etc.).

Shades of Purple was created to encourage American Indian/Alaska Native and underrepresented minority students to pursue higher education as well as to give them the opportunity to experience the UW. Participants will attend workshops to prepare them for the UW admissions process, meet future classmates, learn about campus programs, and much more.
