The UNIS experience goes beyond the classroom. UNIS offers a wide range of activities and experiences that can take our students around the corner or around the globe.At UNIS, our focus is on the whole child and thus students are encouraged to participate in a variety of travel programs, clubs, committees,  publications, and community-service opportunities. As UNIS is the school of the UN, there are many UN related activities such as our annual student-led Model UN and UNIS-UN Conferences, community service with UNICEF, UN Day celebrations and participation in UN Peace Day. Students can join any of our over fifty clubs, as well as attend academic conferences such as the Model UN Conference and the Student Diversity Leadership Conference. There are editorial opportunities, such as the student newspaper, UNISverse, and our yearbook which features both campuses.

UNIS hosts a variety of events throughout the year that celebrate diversity, culture, language, internationalism, and inclusion. To see upcoming UNIS events please see the calendar.

Office of Student Activities

The Office of Student Activities (OSA) is a resource for coordinating student curricular and extra-curricular programs and activities. This includes outdoor environmental education camps, exchange programs, and language immersion programs in the Middle School and Tutorial House.

OSA is responsible for the oversight of student led clubs, committees, conferences and activities. A full list can be seen here.

OSA is a resource center for Tutorial House students seeking community service opportunities within and beyond the school community. The Community Service Program offers the students a chance to learn and grow by contributing their time and talents to various service projects; some on a short-term and others on a long-term basis (such as internships). OSA requires a written Reflection on these experiences with the expectation that students will assimilate what they have learned into their total educational experience at UNIS.
