What our international students and alumni are saying ...

  • Xiaoxue Wu “Archer”, MS in Human Development, China

    “The Warner School’s close-knit learning community has always made me feel at home. As an international student, I appreciate the diverse cultures and perspectives of my professors and peers as well as the School’s pursuit of social justice, which aligns with my own educational philosophy.”

    Xiaoxue Wu “Archer”, MS in Human Development, China

  • Beatriz M. Folch-Torres, MS in Health Professions Education, Puerto Rico

    “Without Warner, I would have had to expend a lot more time and energy developing myself as an educator. It was more than I expected. Not only what I learned in the health professions education program, which I’ve been able to put into practice every day since, but also the connections I was able to make and the relationships I was able to form. It completely prepared me for what’s to come in my medical education, and has been one of the highlights of my graduate education.”
