OISS is participating in Welcoming Week!

Join us for Welcoming Week 2017 September 15-24!

Welcoming America created Welcoming Week to connect neighbors and serve communities. During this annual celebration, people from diverse backgrounds, including gender identity, race, ethnicity, religion, class, and sexual orientation come together to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone.

OISS is hosting several events to engage the WashU community in Welcoming Week.
