Voices Across Campus Echo #YouAreWelcomeHereCWRU

The past few months have brought many challenges to members of the university community. Many of Case Western Reserve University’s international students returned to their home countries to finish their courses remotely in different countries around the world, while many others remained on campus to finish the semester in an environment that is far from normal. 

Despite the changes that prevent us from being together on campus, faculty, staff and students want to reassure our international students that we remain united through Case Western Reserve.

The Center for International Affairs put a call out to campus to help renew the #YouAreWelcomeHereCWRU message during this difficult time and was overwhelmed by the response.

The messages of support and encouragement for our international students have been compiled into a video the center hopes will remind them how much they are valued by their university family, and that Case Western Reserve will always be a place they can call home.
