What is WIAC?
Hosted by the Wheatley Institution at Brigham Young University, the annual Wheatley international Affairs Conference (WIAC) draws 100 students from across the United States, offering opportunities to learn from and interact with experts in international affairs in a context that facilitates networking, first-rate instruction, energetic exchanges of ideas, and collaborative work on policy issues. This year, WIAC will address a variety of issues on Religion and International Affairs in the Middle East.
Each roundtable offers student delegates the opportunity, in a series of roundtable discussions, to analyze and develop policy recommendations for the United States within the topic of their selected roundtable. When registering, delegates select one roundtable that they will participate in. Roundtables are conducted by qualified academic and professional leaders. These discussions will culminate with an end-of-conference group presentation where delegates will present their policy recommendations.
WIAC is attended by undergraduate students from across the nation. Typically these students are studying various social science topics and are interested in the foreign affairs of the United States. Interested and qualified students should be sponsored by their institution and work with their institution to register for WIAC.
