The Evans School Student Organization (ESO) serves as the liaison between the Evans School student body and the faculty and administration. ESO places students on most faculty committees and plays a key role in

  • Developing curriculum
  • Hiring faculty members
  • Shaping academic policies
  • Evaluating courses and professors
  • Setting degree requirements

The ESO is a student-elected body made up of

  • Six second-year students who serve as president, vice president, treasurer, second-year representative (2), and second-year international representative
  • Four first-year students who serve as first-year representative (2), first-year international representative, and outreach coordinator
  • Two GPSS (UW Senate) representatives (one second-year and one first-year)

We believe in the value of all the different perspectives in the Evans School community, independently of race, nationality, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or political background. We are committed to creating an environment where everyone feels welcome and respected among the Evans School community.
