Study Group assures students that #YouAreWelcomeHere

04 August 2017

Study Group is extending the #YouAreWelcomeHere campaign across its US partner universities. Initiated in 2016, this influential movement has become a powerful tool in affirming that US education institutions welcome all international students with open arms.

America is home to the world’s largest international student population. With recent changes in the political landscape, education providers in North America have been seeking ways to engage with international audiences to reiterate that students continue to be warmly received within local communities. Reaching out to students across the globe, #YouAreWelcomeHere affirms that participating institutions will welcome and support overseas students throughout their time here.

Giving the right message

Study Group pioneered the first use of the ‘#YouAreWelcomeHere’ hashtag in November 2016 with the launch of a video featuring six of our North American partner universities, reassuring students that they were welcome at Study Group institutions.

Following the video’s success, #YouAreWelcomeHere became a national campaign managed by Temple University. The movement has more than 250 participating institutions that share the message using Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and other social media channels.

Spreading the word

Study Group is now working with more partner universities in the US to continue spreading the message that #YouAreWelcomeHere. Determined to maintain and strengthen the USA’s reputation as a provider of inclusive, world-class education, we want to make sure that all students receive the right message about studying here.

Through the regular adoption of #YouAreWelcomeHere by people of different backgrounds, ages and roles, we aim to show that all Study Group institutions support internationalisation and long term student success.
