Harvard International Relations Council (IRC)

For Harvard undergraduates only.

The Harvard International Relations Council (IRC) is the undergraduate student group on campus that serves as the principal liaison between the Weatherhead Center and Harvard undergraduates. The IRC promotes awareness and understanding of international affairs among undergraduates through a variety of programs, which include close collaborations with the Center and its Fellows. The Center provides the IRC with funds for these events.

Events and Activities

The IRC's program, International Relations on Campus (IRoC), is responsible for the IRC's outreach on campus. IRoC is the only undergraduate group whose main purpose is to promote the discussion and awareness of international affairs on campus. IRoC collaborates with the Weatherhead Center to plan events including a fall open house, a week dedicated to the discussion of international relations, and occasional symposia on contemporary issues in international relations. In addition, IRoC organizes study groups and dinner talks with Weatherhead Center Scholars and other international affairs practitioners on campus.

Harvard undergraduates from all concentrations with an interest in learning about international affairs may participate.
