What is GWCIA?

GWCIA, the Greater Washington Conference on International Affairs, is an annual single-day Model United Nations conference for middle school students hosted by the George Washington University International Affairs Society. Founded in 1995, the conference has provided an incomparable learning opportunity for attendees, faculty members, and staffers alike by simulating research, debate, and collaboration on some of the most intricate international complexities of both past and present. The conference’s location on the GWU campus in the heart of the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of Washington DC places delegates in the midst of real-life policy makers, international diplomats, and countless resources that crafts a conference like no other. The conference is completely student-run and calls upon the talents and skills of the GW International Affairs community to provide the best experience for all delegates as well as to build a supportive learning community within the University.

The 22nd session of the Greater Washington Conference on International Affairs will be held on Saturday, December 2nd, 2017 on the GWU campus in Washington DC. Explore the above links on this site and stay tuned for more updates closer to the conference!
