Being from ‘away’ and finding a welcome place at UW

Is UW a welcoming place for international and other students who consider themselves from ‘away’? If so, what resources, programs, and/or people make it that way? If not, what can be done better to be welcoming?  At present, xenophobia seems to be on the rise and words that marginalize or inspire fear among those perceived to be from ‘away’ are more common. What will make UW a more welcoming place for all of our students, staff and faculty?

Please RSVP by 4/5/17.  Coffee and sweets will be served.
