Why do we have a “GISA”? What’s our mission? In one line: to make sure all students have the richest student experience possible during their years at the Graduate Institute in Geneva. According to our statutes:
The goals and purposes of the Association are:
To represent students in front of the various bodies in and out of the Institute.
To promote friendly relations between the students and the Institute.
To promote intellectual debate.
To promote cultural and athletic activities.
To support the activities organized by the different autonomous student associations.
To manage the facilities of the association, or collectively entrusted by the Institute to the students.
To communicate frequently and in a transparent manner with its members.
This means we work together to make sure that:
your academic concerns are adequately addressed
we offer a diverse array of social and cultural activities for the days you’re not at the library
we communicate effectively and constantly with all Institute officials, faculty, and staff
we promote students exchange as much as possible to foster a collegial and fun environment in and outside of the classroom
