What We Do
FIUTS (The Foundation for International Understanding Through Students) advances international understanding through cross-cultural experiences, student leadership, and community connections.
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.
