The core of the IRC is a commitment to exposing its members to international relations and cultures in all forms. In pursuit of this goal, the IRC holds a number of academic programs during every semester. These may be anything from cultural dinners at a number of restaurants throughout the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, informal coffee chats with Georgetown professors, lectures by international players in the public and private sectors, or professional networking events.
Beyond this, the IRC is proud to host a number of accomplished guest speakers, including the CMO of Facebook, a New York Times White House Correspondent, the Chairman of the United States Institute of Peace, the President of Freedom House, as well as a number of foreign dignitaries, diplomats, and ambassadors.
We pride ourselves on our ability to use our location in the heart of America's capital as a global classroom. Our club interacts with local high schools, domestic and international NGOs, alumni groups, and other communities within Washington to truly heighten the education of our members. Furthermore, the IRC also holds many social events during the academic year. From ice cream picnics on Healy Lawn to the occasional movie night; a visit to a local museum or the annual Spring Formal, Georgetown's International Relations Club always has something in the works!
