About the Seminar

At the 2022 seminar, we expect attendees from over thirty nations. Each delegate will have her or his own story and viewpoint, contributing to conversations about urban life from a variety of social, economic, political and cultural perspectives. By the time the Seminar is over, each delegate will not only know the stories of others and shared their own but will have gained skills to help them reimagine the world they will inherit.

The World Affairs Seminar is truly an international experience. WAS brings together peers from around the world to learn international relations and develop skills in diplomacy, communication and cooperation. Since 1976 WAS has impacted and changed lives, providing highly relevant skills in group problem solving, negotiation and peaceful diplomacy. Featured speakers represent a wide variety of perspectives, opinions and backgrounds. We believe every point of view matter – we embrace and mandate heathy respectful debate leading to collaborative learning and growth. Your role is to distill information, identify priorities and develop defining skills to both lead and cooperate with others from different cultures to reach workable solutions.

Why Should You Attend?

Prepare yourself for an adventure that will broaden your understanding of international happenings and change your perspective.  The World Affairs Seminar (WAS) brings you face to face with other students, experts, and leaders from the world over.  You will engage in stimulating discussion of world affairs. You’ll interact with experienced professionals—from government, business, and academia.  You will leave with strong bonds and lifelong friends.

Experience the diversity of global political, social and religious traditions. Share your ideas, make new friends, accept the challenge to find out more. Learn to explore and appreciate other points of view. Gain a better understanding of the world around you and where you fit in shaping the future.

At World Affairs Seminar, the goal is to open minds rather than advocate a specific viewpoint. While you are with us, we consider you a “delegate”. Your opinions count – and so do those of others.  It is up to you to decide what messages are credible and to evaluate  and understand of how different people think about global issues and why. You will discuss, add to and exchange ideas about issues.  You will formulate and express your thoughts, hear what others think, and find shared ground. Your leadership and negotiation skills will grow through training sessions and conversation with peers, presenters and counselors.

“WAS is an amazing experience that shouldn’t be passed up, even when online. The connections you make with people from around the world can broaden your point of view and see the world more complexly. The professionalism and friendliness of everyone is a testament to the goodness of this program. It is an amazing blend of camaraderie and education.”
