World Affairs Council of Charlotte
HomeProgramsEducationCalendarMembershipGivingAbout Us



The World Affairs Council of Charlotte (WACC) was founded in 1983 as an outreach program of UNC Charlotte and its Office of International Programs. As a non-profit, non-partisan organization, it is

supported by private funding from individual and corporate member dues and contributions. As a regional center for education and discussion of world affairs, the Council seeks to provide leadership for global thinking, believing that a broad perspective is necessary for effective competition in the global economy

and for responsible citizenship in an increasingly interdependent world. 

The Charlotte Council is a member of the World Affairs Councils of America and together with approximately 92 other such World Affairs Councils and affiliates across the country, our mission focuses on improving international education and encouraging citizens to participate in the national debate on world affairs.
