Student Union

Student leadership and involvement opportunities at CIIS.

Student Union is a student-run and student-funded organization that supports students and promotes their involvement in all levels of the CIIS community. Each semester, we allocate funding to support student groups, participation in international and national conferences, and special events for the CIIS community. Student groups and events serve a diverse field of interests, and we encourage you to participate in any and all that inspire you. Find the full list here

For more information, please visit Student Union on CIIS Connect, or introduce yourself by emailing

Student Groups

The Student Union encourages students to create groups on different common themes and topics to build connection and foster relations with professionals and CIIS community.
