“Study Away” During Early Fall Start – Widening Circles: Online Community for Learning and Action

Are you ready to reach out beyond your everyday circles? Are you looking for new modes of connection, inspiration, and outward movement?

“Widening Circles” is a five-credit CHID “Study Away” program that responds to this unique moment of the global pandemic by offering a digital ecosystem of relationships, social impact internship opportunities, curated curriculum, and multimedia storytelling through a partnership with Omprakash.

Omprakash is a Seattle-based global non-profit that has partnered with UW Study Abroad and CHID to help students connect with social impact organizations around the world and engage in critical dialogue and reflection about the complexities of striving for justice while crossing differences of culture and power.

This program is open to all UW students. It can support your existing commitments and / or point you towards new opportunities. The program is structured enough to give you a sense of direction, yet expansive and adaptable.
