Established over 15 years ago, the WINS program was designed to provide international education experiences for U.S. undergraduate students across multiple institutions. King's College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania was the first WINS partner. Webster University has always worked to meet an unmet need in higher education, and the WINS program continues in this important tradition.
Webster's mission is to ensure "high quality learning experiences that transform students for global citizenship and individual excellence." Founded in 1915 in St. Louis, Missouri, by Sisters of Loretto, a Catholic religious organization, Webster College (originally named Loretto College) was one of the first Catholic women's colleges west of the Mississippi River. Webster was progressive for its time, providing higher education to women, and has continued this spirit while expanding programs around the world.

Our staff regularly attend international education conferences, events and training. We meet up with WINS partners during events including the Forum on Education Abroad, Generation Study Abroad and NAFSA. Two ongoing events for our WINS members include:
WINS at NAFSA
Each year during the NAFSA conference, WINS holds an evening networking reception for current and interested partner institutions. This lively and informal event is a great way to learn about the program, meet staff and mingle with colleagues from a diverse range of institutions. The event is held on Wednesday evening from 6-8 p.m.
Every two years, the WINS conference is held at a different Webster international campus. The conference is designed to provide in-depth understanding of Webster's study abroad programming and to facilitate deeper collaborations between and amongst WINS participants and Webster staff.

“It was valuable to see up close the culture that influenced so much of the modern world, and draw comparisons between the Greek culture and my own. It changed the way I see many aspects of my own culture.”
