ALASKA WORLD AFFAIRS COUNCIL Overview
The mission of the Alaska World Affairs Council, a non-profit, non-partisan educational organization, is to: support and strengthen the United States and its institutions by developing an informed public; to stimulate interest in world affairs through a program of lectures, forums, and other educational activities; to assist individuals in reaching their own conclusions on foreign policy issues; to facilitate cooperation among organizations or groups which have similar aims, including the United Nations and the U.S. Department of State; and to promote international understanding and world peace through programs and personal contact
For the 2012-2013 year, we reached an average of 107 people per program. We also provided opportunities for Alaskan students to engage with international affairs and an average of 35 students attended each program with 94 students at our April 19th program with Barry Eichengreen!
