Events: Q&A–International Students and US Politics

Q&A Intl Students and US Politics-page-001

In light of the current political climate in the U.S., FIUTS is hosting an event intended to help international students explore some of the questions they may be having. This panel and discussion is an opportunity for students to hear from campus departments about what they can and are doing to support international students, and students will be able to ask questions of these offices and share their experiences with each other. The panel features representatives from International Student Services, the Counseling Center, Student Legal Services, and the Division of Student Life. Please share this opportunity with your students.

Volunteer Opportunity: Foundation for International Understanding Through Students (FUITS)

Become a volunteer FIUTS Orientation Facilitator and make friends from around the world! 

FIUTS is an independent non-profit organization that provides cross-cultural leadership and social programming for UW’s international and globally minded domestic students.  FIUTS depends on the generosity and passion of our volunteers to help accomplish our goals.  Volunteering is a great opportunity to learn intercultural leadership skills and make new friends. 

As a FIUTS Facilitator, you will receive cross-cultural leadership training, and gain valuable volunteer experience leading programs and events at UW International Student Orientation in September.  Help welcome over 1,500 new students from around the world to the UW and Seattle!

Volunteer opportunities are open to current UW students who have completed at least one quarter at the UW.  Facilitators complete a short application and attend a Facilitator Orientation.  For more information, check out our website or email Adrienne Wicklund at
