Get involved in CIVIS

Student involvement is an important aspect of the CIVIS alliance. The CIVIS Student Council represents the overall interests of the students of our 10 member universities to the CIVIS authorities. The CIVIS Ambassadors, on the other hand, represent CIVIS to other fellow students. 

By getting involved in CIVIS, you will help us assess our work and share your vision of how CIVIS should evolve. You will also have the opportunity to bring innovative ideas to the table through social events such as CIVIS days and other activities.
