Student life and academic study are enriching and unique experiences. At the Graduate Institute, with a diverse student body coming from all around the world, our lived experiences and challenges throughout our studies are as multi-faceted as our make-up. Within this environment we discover a new culture, form life-long friendships and encounter challenges that we may have never experienced before. Therefore, we believe that facilitating a strong and holistic support system is especially important to thrive and reach our full potential.
The Welfare Committee, founded in 2016, is a specialized committee and member of GISA which is dedicated to promoting the physical, mental and social well-being of our Institute’s student body. We are here to organize events, implement programs and voice your concerns or suggestions. We welcome the involvement of any interested students, irrespective of your program and encourage any initiative that may benefit the welfare of the student body.
The Welfare Committee strives to promote student welfare by a number of different approaches. We seek to promote events and programs that proactively support student welfare, such as sports groups, meditation workshops, art workshops and events that bring students together and strengthen the student community. In addition, we seek to support students in accessing psychological services, mental health support and to support student parents. In short, we are here to support you with any challenges you may face in your social and academic life.
