International Studies Student Association

Who is the International Studies Student Association?

The International Studies Student Association (ISSA) is a student union that promotes SFU's School for International Studies through a variety of events each semester. As a student majoring, minoring, getting a certificate, or taking a class in IS, you are automatically part of the ISSA.

The ISSA’s vision is to promote engagement among IS students through our academic and social events, and encourage participation in the ISSA and IS related events.


Confluence is the official open-access journal of SFU's International Studies Department, published by the International Studies Student Association. It focuses on the views and opinions of IS students, as they explore regional, national and international topics related to race, class, environment, power, politics and more. It also explores the field of international studies, including experiences in the field, traveling, jobs and co-ops.
