Unite UW is an on-campus community-exchange program under UW's Division of Student Life. We provide an inviting and judgement-free environment for domestic and international students to connect to each other and to UW. Through Unite UW, many huskies have found their best friends and a home-like community that celebrates diversity. We hope you do too!
Unite UW runs every quarter with 7-week commitment. For Spring, we will carefully select 90 participants to meet & mingle through a series of cultural/leadership bonding activities (see schedule below), including a 2-night retreat at Pack Forest. Please fill out the application THOUGHTFULLY. Note: Most of our accepted candidates input around 3-5 quality paragraphs per response.
Alternatively, If you see yourself as a leader, you can also apply for the FACILITATOR position.
Unite UW will select 15 facilitators to lead a small group of 6-8 participants each. We are looking for someone who is compassionate, responsible, open-minded, and committed to the mission of Unite UW. Time commitment include: planned program activities, training, plus self-initiated weekly group meet-ups outside of program. Facilitators receive a small stipend upon satisfactory evaluation result with demonstrated time commitment.
