International Studies Student Association
“Be the change you wish to see in the World.” (Mahatma Gandhi)
Who we are:
The ISSA acts as the official liaison between International Studies students and the International Studies Administrative Committee.
What we believe:
We believe that poverty, illiteracy, hunger, oppression, slavery, racism, homophobia, and environmental degradation are not jut issues that happen at a distance. Likewise, they are not just issues that affect “other people” – they affect everyone! The ISSA exists to bring awareness to these issues by engaging students and helping to recognize that they exist in both the local AND global context.
“Individually, we are one drop. Together we are an ocean.” (Ryunosuke Satoro)
Events organized by the ISSA:
In the past, the ISSA has undertaken a number of causes for both the campus community, as well as the local and global community, including hosting international academic speakers, organizing “meet and greet” events for Canadian and international students, holding benefit concerts in support of local and international charities and NGO’s, organizing awareness nights in support of social justice issues, and advocating for structural change within the IS department in support of student needs.
The International Studies Students' Association and Political Studies Students' Association would like to invite you to attend a Meet the Professors Night for International Studies and Political Studies.
