University Heights Center building.


Dear UHeights Community,


It has been my honor and privilege to serve as UHeights’ executive director for the last 10 years, and so it is bittersweet to announce my transition out of the role this summer 2023.  After 20 years in nonprofit leadership, I will be taking time to rest, reflect and focus on family, before my next adventure.

Read Maureen's full letter to our community here.

“UHeights is such a center of the community. It was the center of my community growing up, but now it is the center of a lot of people’s community when they come here”


“The reason I came on as Director of this school was because of that shift towards serving more of the community, and UHeights has that really strong background and vision to make early learning accessible to all families and all children.”


At UHeights, you can express your creativity, get involved in your community, and expand your knowledge all while getting to know your neighbors.

No history of land on America is complete without an acknowledgment of the indigenous people who preceded us. We acknowledge and honor the Duwamish as the host indigenous tribe of the land we gather on. Today, the Duwamish tribe is made of roughly 600 members and is dedicated to the preservation of their peoples' rich history on this land and promoting the social, cultural, and economic survival of their tribe.

To support the Duwamish tribe, learn more about their culture and history and donate to Real Rent Duwamish where all funds go to Duwamish Tribal Services to justly compensate the tribe for their land, resources, and livelihood. To know whose land you are on visit
