Governance

ISOW is led by a team of elected Laurier students and operates as a Wilfrid Laurier University Students' Union club. The Team meets regularly throughout the school year and at a Summer Leadership Retreat to plan for the year ahead. The Team also participates in professional training days in September and January. While ISOW student leaders learn hands-on skills by managing the student levy, Laurier administrators oversee the scholarship and ensure that ISOW's finances adhere to the University's procedures.

ISOW has in place a set of Administration Protocols that govern its relationship with Wilfrid Laurier University and the Students' Union, and establish the limits within which it operates. ISOW's Faculty Advisor, Dr. Gavin Brockett, provides guidance to the Management Team and ensures conformity with University procedures. The Faculty Advisor role extends to implementing the educational dimension of ISOW's mission. In addition, an ISOW Advisory Committee made up of senior University administrators was recently established to hold ISOW student leaders accountable to Laurier.
