The Open Assembly of the School of International Studies (OASIS) was founded in 1988 by the first class of SIS students. This active student government organization assists with numerous events, including the Gerber lectures that bring global leaders to campus, and events that join seniors with first year students in mentoring relationships that encourage academic success. OASIS is also a philanthropic organization which puts on events such as the Study Abroad Photo Show to raise money for Friends of Yimbo, a non-profit organization that works with the people of the Yimbo Village in western Kenya.
