Student Involvement

BS in Global Business

The World Affairs Council, UT Dallas Chapter, is a student organization formed in January 2016 with the support and leadership of the parent organization, World Affairs Council, DFW. The chapter’s inaugural event was held Feb. 2, 2016, and featured Jim Falk, president of the World Affairs Council, DFW, as the guest speaker.

The mission of the UT Dallas chapter is to promote international awareness and cross-cultural understanding in the campus community by bringing speakers and lecturers who are experts on topics currently affecting the world. The organization further engages students by assembling a panel discussion a week or two after a lecture event to discuss and debate the topics that were introduced by the guest speaker/s. Volunteer and networking opportunities also are promoted to encourage student participation.
