    Executive Committee are Scholas President Conor Farrell (USA), Vice President Karen Vargas (Colombia), Secretary Martin K. (Liberia) and Treasurer Patience Atanga (Ghana).

  • Arts and Culture Committee

    Space for everyone to come together to create, collaborate, and take a short break from studying! There are no limits when it comes to exploring arts and culture at ISS.  

  • Environment Committee

    We are committed to bringing awareness and collectively building projects that target environmental thinking and actions of the ISS community. 

  • Sexual Diversity and Inclusion (Queer) Committee

    The Sexual Diversity and Inclusion (Queer) Committee aims to work with the students to promote building safer spaces for people of all genders and sexualities within ISS. We work towards this goal through collaborative actions and initiatives on topics including menstrual equity, harassment and unwanted behaviour, LGBTQI+ inclusion, and collaboration with queer spaces in The Hague.

  • Gender Committee

    We are a feminist group, committed to advancing issues of gender justice in the ISS community and beyond. We seek to disrupt limiting gender binary norms, and enable reflective spaces to challenge harmful stereotypes and assumptions. We value collaboration, curiosity, solidarity and fun. We advocate for menstrual access, cultivating relations of care and ongoing learning about intersectional structural power imbalances. We seek joyful and creative ways to enable safety and equalit

  • Housing Committee 

    The Housing Committee seeks to try and represent our collective issues and struggles with, literally, the ‘everyday.’ Get in touch with us for what’s troubling you at home and we’ll try and help as best as possible! (The extended committee has representatives from all four houses.)

  • International Relations Committee

    To promote understanding among the various nationalities represented at ISS, and increase awareness of the achievements, concerns, problems and current issues of the various countries represented at ISS.

    We are more than parties! This year, the Social Committee is all about integration! We want to be the bridge between the committees and the students, where every single one feels represented and part of the ISS community.
