About QISA The Quaglia Institute for Student Aspirations (QISA) is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to studying, promoting, and putting into practice the conditions that foster student aspirations in schools and learning communities around the world. From the outset, QISA has been guided by the belief that students are the potential, not the problem, in today's educational system. We are driven by the importance of student voice and a conviction that students have something to teach us. They are our companions on this educational journey. Our work is based on over 30 years of research in the field of student aspirations. This research shows that students who believe in themselves, are actively engaged in their learning, and feel a sense of purpose in school are more likely to develop high aspirations.
