Groningen Indian Students Association (GISA) is an organization run by Indian students at the University of Groningen and Hanze . GISA was established in 2006 with the aim to promote the mutual interests of Indian students, reflect India's rich cultural heritage, and establish integration among Indian, Dutch and other international associations in Groningen. Additionally, its motive was to serve as a communication gateway between Indian students and the University. Presently, the association operates as a social, cultural, non-profitable, and non-religious organization which also caters to the needs of a cultural exchange among various organizations. Conclusively, we not only aim to be at the service of Indian students on a socio-cultural level, but also to strengthen the ties between Indians and the entire International community.
