Queer International Student Assembly (QISA) is the LGBTIQA+ wing of The Graduate Institute Student Association (GISA). QISA works towards addressing issues of rights, representation, and visibility of the umbrella queer community in and around the Institute.

AMICALE DES ÉTUDIANTES ET ÉTUDIANTS FRANCOPHONES

L’Amicale des étudiantes et étudiants francophones (AMEF) is a student-founded initiative that aims to promote linguistic and cultural diversity within and beyond the Institute. The various forms of The Francophonie are present in the life of each and everyone, and it is these varied interests that forge the primary commitment of the Amicale: to gather and share under the common dome of the french language.

FEMINIST COLLECTIVE

The Feminist Collective is the feminist voice at the institute. The initiative aims to raise awareness on gender equality and tries to look at global affairs through a feminist lens. We are a big community and looking forward to always expanding it even more and we are open to engage with any organisations, initiatives, or individuals in order to have a louder voice.
