Stay tuned for a new World Affairs Council program that offers monthly hands-on workshops on the current events shaping our world and leadership training to make an impact locally and globally.
The World Affairs Council is looking for host families for two delegations of high school students in March and May from countries as diverse as Angola, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, and more, as part of the U.S. Department of State's Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Program. Host a student and help build international diplomacy from the bottom-up!
The 2015 Great Decisions Series is in full swing, but if you’ve missed a lecture, or can’t make it to the weekly events being held at Portland State you can watch videos of each one after the fact directly from the Multimedia Video Archive of the World Affairs Council website. In most cases, videos will be available within 2 weeks of the lecture.
