The NWIC/WWU Science partnership is a collaborative program between the Northwest Indian College (NWIC) in Bellingham, WA and Western Washington University, focusing on encouraging cultural exchange between our institutions and providing an opportunity for students at NWIC who are interested in careers in the sciences. Participating students will form a small cohort of students from WWU and NWIC. All of the students in the group will be attending the PHYS 16X sequence at WWU. The WWU students would also attend a class at NWIC that would serve as a GUR (chosen to match the unmet GUR requirements and interests of the participating students). This program will be a wonderful opportunity to experience the culture of new academic institutions, meet new friends, and be part of building a collaborative relationship between our institutions. There are also other perks to being involved, like free tutoring for only the small group of participating students, free textbooks, and more.

We are currently recruiting WWU students planning to enroll in Physics 161-162-163 in Fall-Winter-Spring of the 2015/2016 academic year. We would like to invite you to learn more about the program, either by attending the informational session we are hosting on Tuesday, May 5 at 3:30 in CF 386, or by contacting either Janelle Leger or Regina Barber DeGraaff. All are welcome!
