Students pursuing a degree in International Development are strongly encouraged to participate in the activities of the International Development Studies Student Association (IDSSA) which is the student wing of the IDS program.
The Association creates opportunities for students to participate in the process of giving the Program a more creative shape. It also raises the profile of the Program, creates awareness among the faculty and students about development challenges facing the world today, keeps students informed as to job opportunities in the broad field of International Development, and organizes different events for students and faculty. The IDSSA also aims to provide students with an open forum for debates and discussions around developmental issues and concerns. It also is a great place for students to socialize.
