The Alaska World Affairs Council had an amazing event season this year! Thank you to all of the speakers, sponsors, members, attendees, students, staff, and volunteers who made it all possible! We hosted 43 public engagements and reached over 4,000 Alaskans!

While we currently have no summer events scheduled, stay on the look out for any pop-up events we might slip in over the next few months.
