Washington STARS

Washington STARS helps highly motivated students from low-income backgrounds succeed in engineering and computer science by providing a strong foundation in critical learning skills and core academics. The program, which began in 2013, is housed at the University of Washington College of Engineering.

We helped the STARS team tell not only their own story but the compelling stories of their students and graduates. We created the program’s first Impact Report which spanned six years — from 2013 to 2019.  The report pages included profiles of “shining STARS” — students who succeeded despite the odds. The statistics speak for themselves: Nine out of 10 students in the STARS first cohort were employed immediately after graduation.  A shining success story!
