Leadership Dinner

Leadership Dinner

The Leadership Dinner is an opportunity to bring together faculty, staff, and students to discuss the core values at SIS--what they are are, what they mean, and how they can be embodied by all the SIS community.

The International Affair

The International Affair is the annual end of the school year celebration organized by GSC for all the SIS graduate students, both first and second year. For more information about this year's event, or to join the planning committee, contact us!

Community Engagement

Service is an important part of life in SIS, and the GSC seeks to give students the opportunity to serve their community in productive, meaningful ways. In addition to collaborating with student associations, including the American University Peace Corps Community (AUPCC), the GSC also sponsors an annual event mid-academic year to engage students in service.
