The Graduate Institute Student Association (GISA)

is tasked with being the voice of and principal events organiser for the student body at the Graduate Institute. In short, GISA's mission is to make sure all students have the richest student experience possible during their years in Geneva. Every student at the Graduate Institute is a member of GISA and is welcome to attend meetings, parties, and discussions, as well as run for a position as either a Class Representative or a member of the six-person Executive Board.

The members of GISA work together to:

  • ensure academic concerns are adequately addressed
  • offer a diverse array of social and cultural activities
  • communicate effectively and constantly with all Institute officials, faculty and staff
  • promote student exchange as much as possible to foster a fun, collegial environment in and outside of the classroom

More information on GISA, including news and the Association's statutes, may be found on their external website at ourgisa.com



Student Initiatives are clubs, or student organizations, formed and coordinated by current IHEID students of any program and year. Some are connected with outside organizations. Others are organizations unique to IHEID.
