Want to stay internationally engaged at WWU? Join the WWU Global Ambassadors Club – Attend monthly “socials,” coffee series, and professional networking events. The purpose of Global Ambassadors is to provide a safe space for students who have been abroad, or international students studying here at WWU, to share their experiences with other students whom have also been abroad, as well as aim to connect with other internationally focused groups to promote an understanding and appreciation of global perspectives. If you are interested in being a part of this club please contact and check out the Facebook page WWU Global Ambassadors.
