First Year Programs won the UW Faculty & Staff Insider #YouW photo contest for June! Featuring the First-year Interest Group (FIG) work. A recent study showed that that students who participate in the First-Year Interest Group (FIG) program graduate at higher rates than those who don’t. To celebrate this achievement, and the 30-year anniversary of the program, the team posed together on Suzzallo’s front steps.
First Year Programs fosters a successful undergraduate student experience through strategic programming that focuses on positive academic transitions and the development of learning communities. Through partnerships with faculty, staff, alumni, and student leaders our programs create the space for students to define how they will engage, learn, and thrive at the University of Washington.
