The UWVGU is very good about communication.
The new focus is to operate initiatives from the UW office, so they are meeting those goals.
Rethink the application process. Even though the UW has moved to an online system, there are still a lot of irrelevant and redundant questions that take a lot of time to answer. Fewer, broader questions would give you better information.
The UWVGU is a solid, community-oriented organization. It is not the UW of the past and applicants need to be aware of the change in focus.
Like most UWs, this one does bring attention to the issues concerning this community.
