About the IDSSA

The McGill International Development Studies Students Association (IDSSA) comprises the over one thousand undergraduate international development studies students at McGill University.  All undergraduate students in the international development major, minor, honours, or joint honours program are automatically a member of the IDSSA. 

The goal of the IDSSA is to provide students with a space to extend their interest in the International Development Studies beyond the classroom. Aside from representing students' academic interests, the IDSSA  also hosts discussions, conferences, film screenings, and other events. 

For any questions, concerns, inquiries, or event suggestions, please email us at: idssamcgill@gmail.com
