UMW International Relations Organization


Most general meetings consist of discussions based upon current events in International Affairs.

The IRO also includes UMW’s Model United Nations team, which travels to and participates in conferences around the country.


The IRO strives to educate the UMW community about issues in international relations while teaching how to effectively write about and discuss these topics. It is a great resume builder, and a fantastic way to get to know students with similar interests in International issues.


Meetings are open to UMW students and are held on Tuesdays in Monroe 110 at 8pm.


You should join if:

  • You enjoy talking about world issues!
  • You have an interest in discussing current events!
  • You have a major such as Geography, Economics, History, International Affairs, or Political Science!
  • You want to debate and expand your communication skills!
