Our Mission & Vision
The International Relations Council (IRC) brings a global perspective to our community through strategic partnerships with businesses, universities, community organizations and K-12 schools.
We bring world leaders and dignitaries to the metro region, host forums for high school students to interact with and learn from foreign policy experts, and create opportunities for area business leaders to strengthen relationships abroad.
We believe that by promoting global awareness and understanding, we support and strengthen our community.
Since 1955, the IRC has been the region's leading organization for global affairs education.
Our National Network
The IRC is one of more than 90 organizations in the U.S. affiliated with the World Affairs Councils of America (WACA) ». WACA is the largest non-profit organization in the United States dedicated to fostering grassroots understanding of, and engagement in, international affairs.
