Who is the IRC? The IRC is so much more than just DC.
The geographic distribution of IRC members.
Together, we are the world.
The Georgetown International Relations Club (IRC) is the hub for all student-based international relations activity on campus. It’s the main forum for Georgetown undergraduates to build upon their foreign affairs education outside of the classroom. Each year, we host numerous speaking, cultural, social, and philanthropic events. We’re also home to the Georgetown Model United Nations traveling team, one of the country and world’s most decorated collegiate Model UN programs.
Beyond being a great learning experience, the IRC is a fantastic place to get to know hundreds of other Hoyas who may be different from you but share your spirit for fun and learning about international affairs. Check out some of the great events we have planned for this year that pique your interest, and dive in!
Georgetown International Relations Association
Our sister organization, the Georgetown International Relations Association (GIRA), is a non-profit that promotes youth education in international relations. Its two largest programs are the National Collegiate Security Conference (NCSC) and the North American Invitational Model United Nations (NAIMUN) - Model United Nations conferences hosted in Bethesda and DC each October and February, respectively.
Additionally, GIRA sponsors international travel to promote and foster youth education in international relations, and offers the Global Generations Grant as an outlet for Georgetown students to pursue their passions, engage others, and impact communities through self-designed projects that promote teaching and understanding of global affairs.
