The International Affairs Forum (IAF) seeks to educate and engage our community on global issues through lectures, conferences and student outreach. Our aim is to help prepare the community for success in today’s global society and economy, in partnership with the many businesses and organizations located here with a global reach.

IAF is a member of the World Affairs Councils of America, the largest national non-partisan network of almost 100 councils in more than 40 states dedicated to educating and engaging Americans on the critical global issues of our times.
