Students Prepare to Launch an International Students' Association

News Staff - Tue Feb 18, 2014

The Students' Union has been working closely with international students to facilitate the creation of an International Students' Association (ISA).

The following summary report has been compiled following a number of community consultations, and outlines the mandate and role that an ISA would play in our campus community:

International Students' Association Summary Report

Come and build your official International Students' Association. We are now accepting proposals for a structure that will best allow the ISA to deliver its mandate.

Proposals should address the following pieces in the context of the ISA's mandate:

  • Organizational Structure
  • Decision-making Structure and Processes
  • Organizational Values
  • Programming, Activities and Function

Please browse over this short guide to creating a proposal for a new association as a starting point, and contact Rebecca from our Discover Governance Office ( if you have any questions about proposal writing or the process in general.

Proposals will be due on March 14th at 11:59pm.

A town hall will be hosted by the Students' Union at 5:00 PM on March 28th, 2014 in Telus 134 for individuals/groups to present their proposals. International students are encouraged to come out and voice their opinions on how they want to be represented. The group whose proposal wins the most support among international student attendees that evening will form the ISA for the 2014-15 academic year.

Further information on the ISA can be found here.
