Our Mission

FIUTS (The Foundation for International Understanding Through Students) connects university students to local and global communities through programs that build international awareness, cross-cultural communication, and informed leadership.

Based on campus at the University of Washington, FIUTS programs create a community of international and American students, members of the local community, and alumni around the world.

As a center of international culture that links campus with community, FIUTS delivers programs to a diverse range of constituents that promote cross-cultural understanding, global culture, and respect for diversity.

FIUTS programs strive to:

    * Promote citizen diplomacy as a way of improving international perceptions of the US and building bonds between people from diverse backgrounds.

    * Provide unique experiences to students and community members that expand cultural horizons and challenge people to learn about each other.

    * Foster youth leadership and civic engagement through global education and shared experiences.

    * Inspire lifelong passion for international affairs and cross-cultural understanding in our community and across the globe.
