Goucher International Student Association (GISA)
GISA, Goucher's International Student Association, was established to both raise cultural awareness within the Goucher community, by organizing various events such as Arabian Nights, International Fair, Peace Corps information sessions and International Food celebrations, and to facilitate the elimination of misconceptions and stereotypes by hosting discussions and educational movie screenings such as that of "Reel Bad Arabs". As any other organization dedicated to fighting misconceptions and promoting cultural diversity in a society that may not always welcome it, our task is not an easy one, but one that we are absolutely dedicated to tackling. Our aim, to enrich student life by creating and maintaining inter-cultural exchange and providing a support system for culturally diverse students, is one we will persist with regardless of obstacles, and we invite anyone interested in making Goucher a more open-minded society to join.
