The FISU

The International University Sports Federation (French: Fédération internationale du sport universitaire; FISU) is an international sports organization founded to develop and promote sports among students.
Founded in 1949, in Merano, Italy, FISU’s main responsibility is the supervision of both the Summer and Winter Universiades, as well as the World University Championships. The General Assembly representing its members (170 National University Sports Federations) is FISU’s main governing body. It elects for a four-year period the Executive Committee, which takes all the necessary decisions for the smooth running of FISU. Fourteen permanent commissions advise the Executive Committee in their specialised areas, thus facilitating its duties. FISU is funded through subscription, organising and entry fees, television incomes and marketing activities.
