USI encourages cultural, social, recreational and sports-related initiatives proposed by students.
To this end, it supports the establishment of non-profit student associations, giving credit to their activities and to their role by providing them space and resources.
The term “Student Association” identifies a group of students currently enrolled at Università della Svizzera italiana (USI), who come together to promote a common interest. Such organisations are founded and run by students, but may include other members of the academic community such as alumni, faculty, and staff – as long as the member’s majority is formed by students enrolled at USI.
USI is aware of the vital contribution that Student Associations provide to education and the academic life: however, from a formal point of view, an officially acknowledged Student Association, should not be considered as an emanation of USI and its academic activities.
The following document illustrates how to start a new Student Association and how to get USI’s formal acknowledgment, with relevant rights and duties.
