Student Engagement Program

Main page content

The IIGE Student Engagement Program (SEP) opens up classroom learning through site visits, the Distinguished Speaker Series, and a growing professional network. 

The purpose of SEP site visits is to bring students into environments where they can understand the complexities of decision-making, entrepreneurship, and innovation, to name just a few processes that orient them to the flexibility, adaptability, and lateral thinking they need to be successful in an interdependent world. By meeting with executives and professionals from a variety of fields at globally-connected companies, students can explore career options, develop professional contacts, and make critical connections between coursework and careers.

Site visits and other SEP activities are arranged and announced on a quarterly basis. Please email IIGE Program Coordinator Alexis Wheeler (wheela@uw.edu) for more information.
