UMW International Relations Organization

IRO Information:


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

We debate and discuss international affairs topics, attend national, competitive conferences around the country for IRO’s Model UN students, put on charity events, and much more.


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 Thursdays from 7-8 in Monroe 346. We’d love to see you there!
