International Student Success

The UW is committed to cultivating cultural and global awareness, knowledge exchange, innovative research across national borders, and cross-cultural relationships.

Central to this commitment is the value of international education, including but not limited to the enrollment of international students and encouragement of study abroad, as a means to foster a critically informed and responsible student population prepared to engage in an increasingly globalized world.

Our international students bring diverse perspectives, knowledge, and experiences that strengthen classrooms, research, and cross-cultural competencies of every UW student, faculty, and staff member. Their presence creates a deeper learning environment and generates innovative research that addresses local and global challenges.
