International Studies Student Association

The International Studies Student Association is an SFU Student Union for the School for International Studies. We are a group of passionate International Studies students that plan and execute events that could promote student engagement in both social and academic aspects. Especially during these times, it is difficult to connect with one another. We hope that ISSA can continue to provide a space where students can learn, interact, and procreate opportunities for student engagement and well-being!
