Students & Educators

At the World Affairs Council of Greater Houston, we are proud to be the premier student nonprofit organization in Houston, offering nonpartisan learning opportunities and cultural experiences that can broaden your horizons. Our mission is to promote free and fair discussion on global topics and the pressing concerns of today. We bring together politicians, intellectuals, speakers, students, teachers, professors and deep thinkers from all over the world. At the same time, these gatherings are open to the public as we strive to create an inclusive atmosphere for all to expand their worldview.

Your Options in Houston

Part of our focus is on travel opportunities that go beyond the surface and allow for an immersive, captivating experience. However, we are also an international student organization in Houston dedicated to bringing opportunities to members of our global city. A few of the options you have include:

  • Speaking engagements
  • Private luncheons
  • Council cabinet receptions
  • Evening programs based on open dialogue
  • Dinner events with world leaders
  • Cultural sessions

Additionally, we offer educational opportunities for students and Houston teacher groups. Students get one-on-one meetings that can prove challenging and thought-provoking. Teachers have the chance to get professional development credit, allowing them to expand their minds and enhance their careers at once. As the premier international student organization in Houston, continuing education has always been our driving force.

While many events are open to the public, membership gives you access to discounted prices, travel opportunities, early notification about upcoming events and more immersive experience with the top student nonprofit organization in Houston.
