International Forestry Students’ Association

IFSA is a recognized student organization in the College of Forestry and allows students to connect to others in the forestry sector on an international level. Comprised of Local Committees (LC) such as the OSU Chapter, the International Forestry Students’ Association is the largest international network of students in forestry and related sciences. IFSA is a globally organized and locally operating students’ organization connecting forest and related science students to their peers and forest related organizations and policy platforms.

With more than 130 member associations spread across over 60 countries, IFSA unites more than 12,000 students in their endeavor to learn about forests, cultures and the environment. IFSA is a non-political, non-profit, and non-religious organization that is entirely run by students.

In IFSA we seek to create global cooperation among students of forest and related sciences, to broaden knowledge and understanding and a space for youth in international forest processes to achieve a sustainable future for our forests. Through our network, we facilitate student meetings, enable participation in scientific debate, and support the involvement of youth in decision making processes regionally and globally.
