A collaborative way to minimise multicultural imbalance through practical solutions
Are you a new international students of WU?
This year. S&I collaborated with CSF, our Student Council colleagues to present this new initiative. The main purpose is to eliminate the imbalance knowledge gap for the international students when they first arrive in Wageningen to start their study and their life. After the implementation of this initiative, more detailed and convenient information would be provided for every internationals. The handbook will indicate all the situations they may come across in this university. We hope this can bring a lot of convenience for all of us.
Did you know there is a volunteer website exists in Netherlands which you can find more than 5000 works on it?
S&I cares about students' interactions with the other students and Wageningen citizens. We hope everyone can enjoy a good time in WUR and Wageningen, meeting lovely people, finding loved and friends.
Therefore, we contacted the municipality library to give these nice volunteers' work more exposure inside the students' community.
By building a nice bridge between locals and students, we can stimulate understanding and respect, which also has a lot of benefits towards inclusivity and diversity.
