Where pop meets culture, a medium becomes a message, and new ways of talking to each other emerge – we are SFU's School of Communication. The Communication Student Union represents the vibrant, trendsetting young thinkers who will shape the future of how you connect to your world.
The Simon Fraser Student Society is a student-led organization that represents and advocates for the interests of the 25,000+ undergraduate students at SFU. We are your not-for-profit support network and voice at SFU and provide services and support to make your student life better.
We support. We provide. We enhance.
The SFSS is governed by a student-elected Board of Directors that is elected every spring semester. They are advised by Council, a body representing every faculty and departmental student union across all three SFU campuses. The indispensable SFSS permanent and student staff assist our activities with front-line services and behind-the-scenes support.
The GSS is the student society and government for all graduate students at Simon Fraser University. We represent over 4,000 students in 38 academic programs at SFU’s Burnaby, Surrey and Vancouver campuses. The GSS was born on July 26, 2007 after a referendum in Spring of 2007 where SFU students voted to form a new society, independent from the SFSS, to represent graduate students.
Stream is a peer-reviewed journal for communication studies that focuses on work from top graduate students and emerging scholars in the broad tradition of critical theory. Submissions are welcome from all fields and disciplines that may overlap with communication studies. Primary consideration will be given to contributors who meaningfully challenge authority, defy convention, explore contradiction, contest presupposition, problematize established perspectives, deconstruct flawed projects, disrupt existing conditions, or critique the unjust. We’re providing a platform for emerging critical scholars to share their ideas, which includes working papers as well as completed pieces. We’re offering space to celebrate and re-invigorate the tradition of critical theory while expanding its influence and re-asserting its prescience.
