Hi Keiko and Sammy:

November is UW Global Month. Units across campus are invited to plan events that showcase the UW’s global networks and all of the opportunities it creates for students. UW Global Month is sponsored by the Office of Global Affairs, and they will assist us in marketing the event. Would your team consider planning an event or promoting UW Global Month on social media? It would be a good way to let students/researchers/faculty/etc. know about your department/club/etc. Here’s one idea….

Let me know what you think!
