Learn about ways to connect “the right students to the right opportunity at the right time” in a newly published report on the Husky Experience, an initiative at the UW to help students gain meaningful experiences inside and outside the classroom. The UW-IT study explores how UW students navigate information about extracurricular opportunities — internships, study abroad, volunteering, mentoring and more — and how the UW can better inform and engage them. Findings show how better marketing, more integrated technology tools, and improved data for evaluating programs would make the program more effective.
