Foster Opportunities for All Students

Our Foster community is not limited to admitted Foster students. There are many opportunities open to prospective Foster students, high school students, community college students, and non-business majors to engage with their peers and participate in activities, organizations and programs within Foster.

The list below includes many of the Foster opportunities that are available to all students. Learn how you can get involved!

Student Organizations and Groups

Foster Registered Student Organizations (RSO): Foster’s nearly 30 student organizations are an excellent way for students to meet new friends with common interests, develop their leadership and business skills, and participate in activities outside of the classroom. UW students who are not admitted to Foster can still join most Foster RSO’s. Visit the Undergraduate Business Council (UBC) website for more info.

Transfer Student Advisory Board (TSAB): Are you a prospective transfer student with questions about the transfer experience at Foster? Reach out to the Transfer Student Advisory Board (TSAB), which is a committee of undergraduate students who were admitted as transfer students to the Foster School. TSAB meets once per month between October to May, advises the Undergraduate Programs Office regarding the transfer student experience, and acts as ambassadors for the transfer student community at Foster.

Undergraduate Diversity Services (UDS): Foster is committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse student body by creating a culture of respect which values diversity, equity and inclusion. UDS serves as a holistic resource for students from backgrounds historically underrepresented in the greater business community (including those of minority, economically disadvantaged and first generation backgrounds). UDS has many programs for high school students, UW students, and business pre-majors — and most students who participate in UDS programs stay connected to the UDS community even if they don’t major in business.

Activities and Programs

At The Table (ATT): At the Table, a premier program by the Foster School of Business, gives students the chance to meet female CEOs and executives in an informal, small-group environment. Learn about their career paths, their companies, and what it takes to succeed as a female entrepreneur and business-owner. Upcoming ATT events are announced on the Foster Undergraduate Programs Office’s social media pages: Instagram / Facebook / Twitter

Foster Leadership Academy: The Foster Leadership Academy is a non-academic certification program open to current UW students. Upon completion, each student will receive a Certificate, a professional Foster branded gift, and a valuable experience for your resume.

Case Competitions: Challenge yourself and put your studies to practice. Competitions at the Foster school provide students the opportunity to solve real-world problems, join a team, network with business leaders, and collaborate with peers in an intense team-driven environment.

Foster Instructional Tutoring Center (FIT): FIT offers FREE tutoring in specific Foster School courses. Tutoring services are available to all UW students! Visit the FIT Facebook page for more details.

Young Women’s Leadership Summit (YWLS): Foster’s Young Women’s Leadership Summit is targeted at rising high school seniors who identify as female. Students in this program will explore the world of business through team-building activities, seminars with faculty and professionals, leadership development workshops, and student and alumni connections. Join YWLS and connect with other like-minded young women while exploring the world of business! Learn more about WLS here.
