Committee

We are students from the University of St. Gallen.

The International Students’ Committee (ISC) is a team of around 35 students from the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. Our team works on an honorary basis, starting in September through June, with the annual symposium taking place in May.

Our team is selected by the St. Gallen Foundation for International Studies based on a rigorous selection process aimed to choose high performing individuals to form a team with the potential to run a world-class event. The current year's Head of the Organising Committee is recruited from the previous year's team.

As well as designing and planning the symposium, the student team is especially involved with the development of the conceptual framework and content of the «3 days in May». It decides on the key themes and fosters contacts with the Circle of Benefactors, selected speakers and key figures in business, politics and society as a whole. It also maintains links with media representatives and leading universities around the world.
