There are many different ways to engage with, strengthen, and empower communities through service and action. Each year, the Office of Community-Based Learning and Research teams up with Student Life and Cascadia Community College to offer a series of one-day and short-term service projects that allow students to make small, tangible differences in the community.
The International Student Mentor (ISM) Program helps ease the adjustment process of incoming international students during their first quarter and encourages their successful academic and social transition into the UW Bothell community. The program pairs new international students with a current UWB international or domestic student mentor who is responsible for providing the new students with information and support, connecting them with campus resources, and helping them engage through various social activities and events.
CBLR creates opportunities to connect in-classroom learning to meaningful engagement with community organizations, through in-class projects and the Student Civic Fellows.
Oak Hall at Husky Village brings together students with international and multi-cultural interests, experiences, and aspirations to live together and participate in special activities that foster intercultural exchange. Domestic and international students are welcome to apply.
Students, faculty and staff can play an active role in promoting awareness and understanding of diversity, social justice, gender equity, historically underrepresented communities, and multiculturalism through the Diversity Council, as well as various on-campus and outreach programs.
The Office of Student Life is a hub for all campus clubs and organizations, including Human Equality and Rights Everywhere, Students Organizing Diversity Activities, and the Muslim Student Organization, among others.
