Board of Trustees

The FIUTS Board of Trustees are a major part of how FIUTS delivers its programs. Learn more here.



As a community based non-profit based on campus at the University of Washington, FIUTS enjoys a unique position in two distinct spheres of Seattle life. Two sets of board members - a community Board of Trustees representing UW and community interests, and a Student Board representing domestic and international student interests - provide important leadership and perspective to FIUTS programs.
