SIS prides itself on promoting student engagement and offers several different avenues
for students to connect with each other, faculty, staff, and guest speakers.
SIS Student Lounge
The SIS Student Lounge provides a space for students to interact with other students
from all of our programs. It also provides access to important SIS documents, faculty
office hour Zoom links, and recordings of previous events.
Virtual Coffee Hours
About once a month during the Fall and Spring semesters, SIS hosts an informal gathering
called virtual coffee hours. The meetings typically include a guest speaker or focus
on a particular topic of interest suggested by students. All virtual coffee hours
are recorded and shared in the student lounge for those who cannot attend live.
During the first month of the Fall and Spring semester, the SIS Director holds a virtual
student townhall. These events provide students with important updates regarding SIS
programs and upcoming events. The townhalls are also an opportunity for students to
raise questions or concerns with the Director.
