Participate in NUUW Connections this summer to practice Russian and learn more about Kazakhstan!

As part of an ongoing partnership with Nazarbayev University, UW-Madison will host 42 students from NU this summer. Russian Flagship students are invited to participate in an informal language and cultural exchange with these students, known as NUUW Connections (pronounced "new" and known in previous summers as WisKaz or WisKaz-BRIDGE).

Interested students will be placed on teams (small groups) with the NU students, organized around common interests. In addition to students from the Russian Flagship Program, other UW-Madison students from CESSI, BRIDGE, and elsewhere will also participate in the exchange, so this is a great chance to meet people from all over campus. For those who want to practice speaking Russian, Kazakh, or another foreign language, you'll have the option to be placed on a team with other speakers of those languages.

Teams will be encouraged to meet once per week and will create their own schedules. Numerous social gatherings will be organized for NUUW participants, including a bonfire at Picnic Point, a bowling party at Union South, and a picnic at the Henry Vilas Zoo, to name a few. There will not be any other assignments or requirements for those who choose to participate in NUUW.

Interested students should sign up here by Monday, June 5 at 5:00 pm.

Please contact Laura Marshall with questions.
