World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh

Bringing the world to Pittsburgh for over 80 years

The World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to providing a pathway for a more globally minded region, offering students and the community a learning space that covers key international issues. Established in 1931, the Council is committed to informing opinion leaders and decision-makers about developments around the world as they unfold – and to educating them about the relevance of such developments to the region. The Council also has a special focus on secondary schools throughout the region, and works to give students and teachers a more nuanced understanding of the global issues of our time. The Council is a member of the World Affairs Council of America (WACA), a network of more than 90 nonprofit, nonpartisan member Councils around the country.
