Celebrating Excellence in Volunteerism

The ISSS’ annual Volunteer Appreciation Night, or simply just VAN, is an event that celebrates the spirit of volunteerism and recognizes individuals who make exceptional contributions to ISSS through volunteer programs and administration. Nominated by fellow undergraduate science students, these outstanding volunteers are awarded VAN Awards at our annual events. The VAN is also a chance to network with fellow students while enjoying refreshments provided by the ISSS. Make sure you nominate your favourite ISSS volunteer(s) and/or attend the IAN!
