Current Graduate Students

CIRCLE is here to provide holistic support for your continuing success to complement services from your graduate departments. We acknowledge that graduate school can be very isolating, but you are not alone in this journey. 

Through the support of key campus partners, CIRCLE features two professional development workshops and one community building event each quarter exclusively for international graduate students. Workshop topics include, but are not limited to:

  • cross-cultural communication, 
  • career exploration, 
  • professional networking, 
  • navigating U.S. graduate education, and 
  • getting the academic support you need. 

The quarterly community-building event offers international graduate students an opportunity to connect with one another beyond one’s department or college/school, hear from inspirational speakers, and share good food and enjoy the time. Check out the CIRCLE calendar for the most up-to-date event announcements and for other CIRCLE programs that are open to all UW students or all UW international students. 

We look forward to supporting your success!
