Navigation :

One of FISU’s core values is integrity. FISU follows the principles of honesty, transparency, fair play, equality and inclusion. FISU’s organisational structure, administration and activities reflect these aspects of good governance. FISU believes when an organisation is governed with a high ethical standard, it promotes confidence among all stakeholders and leads to better decision making and accountability.

The Executive Committee

The FISU Executive Committee meets at least twice a year to take all major decisions necessary for optimal functioning of the organisation. Get to know all of FISU’s Executive Committee Members (below), from the President and Vice-Presidents to all members and continental delegates.
