Foster Opportunities for All UW Students

Our Foster community is not limited to admitted Foster students. There are many opportunities open to prospective Foster 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 UW 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. 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): The University of Washington Michael G. Foster School of Business is committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse student body by creating a culture of respect which values diversity, equity and inclusion. The UDS mission is to serve as a holistic resource for students from backgrounds historically underrepresented in the greater business community. These groups of students include those of minority, economically disadvantaged and first generation backgrounds.

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

Business Undergraduates in Leadership Development (BUILD) Program: BUILD helps UW Undergraduates to enhance their leadership skills by attending workshops and events throughout the year. Students who complete a certain number of BUILD events will be eligible for the Foster Leadership Certificate.

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.
