CMU is the Department of Communication, University of Washington building on the Seattle campus. It is wheelchair accessible through the elevator on the left, Stevens Way side of the building.
Please help us make sure this is a scent-free zone and limit perfume / cologne use.
We would like to recognize that the UW sits on what was originally Duwamish tribal land, a tribe that continues to go unrecognized by our federal government.
We hope to see all of you there!
