Student Experiences with Unstable Housing

I am a graduate student in the School of Social Work and I’m working with the Health & Wellness office to identify and better support students at our university who are experiencing unstable housing situations. We would really appreciate it if you would be willing to send the following survey out to your students. It’s pretty short and should take less than 10 minutes to complete–I know it’s a busy time of the quarter.

https://catalyst.uw.edu/webq/survey/rankinlf/270550

If you have any questions or concerns, I would be happy to answer them. And if you’re not the right person to ask, I would really appreciate it if you could direct me to someone else.

Thanks so much for your help with our project.

Dear Students,

Are you interested in sustainable science and engineering? Do you want to network with professionals in this field? If so, please join us in launching the International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories (I2SL) UW Student Chapter TOMORROW (Wednesday, May 20) from 5-6 pm in Allen Research Commons Room Red C.

This will be the very first student chapter of I2SL in the world, thus we need a strong group of undergraduate and graduate students to lead the way and create a model for future student chapters at other universities. We are looking for applicants for all officer positions and these are open to all students. There are also many opportunities for students to get involved as members (e.g. planning events, fund raising, and more!). This meeting will discuss officer positions, general format of the student chapter, meeting schedule, and more.

Please feel free to contact me with questions or inquiries at eci2sl.shootc. See you there tomorrow!
