Dear ,

We are inviting you to take a short eight question survey about your University of Washington education.

Why you?: We identified you as having taken at least 15 credits of international-content coursework. International coursework is defined as courses in any discipline (social sciences, humanities, natural sciences, arts, etc.) that contain significant content about countries/regions of the world beyond the US. (These are: the Arctic, Australia/Oceania, Canada, Central Asia, East Asia, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Latin America/South America, Middle East & North Africa, Russia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Sub Saharan Africa.)

Survey goal: To help us understand the impact of international-content courses on your career/life after graduation from the UW.

Survey outcome: To help us consider new avenues for educating students at UW.

Confidentiality: Responses will not be identified by individual and will be aggregated for analysis.

Results: All survey respondents will receive a summary of the survey results.

We very much appreciate your willingness to reflect upon your education at the University of Washington.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact s71613@uw.edu.

Yours sincerely,
