Welcome to the 2019-20 Academic Year!

A welcome message from Denzil Suite, UW Vice President for Student Life.

Dear Huskies,

I couldn’t be more excited to welcome you to a new academic year. We in the Division of Student Life serve to connect both undergrads and grad students with opportunities and resources to more fully engage while at UW, and to have a well-rounded, healthy, and fulfilling Husky Experience.

We regularly collaborate with students to create transformative experiences that encompass student voices and priorities in order to meet the real needs of our community. We’ve been hard at work over the summer, and I’m excited to share with you a couple big student-fueled developments:

A New Home for the Global Husky Experience

Introducing CIRCLE

CIRCLE is UW’s new hub for international student support and cross-cultural engagement. Opening this fall, the CIRCLE office will house FIUTS and Unite UW and provide a unified “front door” for domestic and international students’ global Husky Experience.

A Unified Portal for your Health Services

Husky Health & Well-Being

Nothing is more important than your health and well-being. Husky Health & Well-Being is UW’s new one-stop wellness website. A student collaboration from the start, the site streamlines access to UW’s full spectrum of care and resources.

Husky Health & Well-Being


We are here to support not only your educational journey, but also your growth and well-being beyond the classroom. College is a unique and transformational experience, and our top priority is to help you make the most of your time on campus.

On behalf of myself and all Student Life staff, welcome to the 2019-20 academic year!

Go Dawgs!

Denzil J. Suite, Ph.D.
Vice President for Student Life
