Host Family Program

Host Family Program

The host family program at UW-Whitewater is a non-live in situation designed to promote cross-cultural understanding by fostering interaction between Whitewater area residents and UW-Whitewater international students. Host families benefit from these friendships by learning more about the ways of life in other lands. The students benefit because they are assisted in their transition to living in the United States.
