The Association of International Relations (AIR) seeks to enrich the academic and social lives of all students who share an interest in global affairs and politics. AIR facilitates discussion and learning about international relations by hosting IR-related speakers and holding dinner events for students to discuss amongst themselves and with their IR professors. AIR also holds social events featuring IR-related trivia and other leisure activities to create a network of students with a passion for IR. This network allows lower-year history, political science, and IR students to benefit from the experiences of upper-year students who share their personal study and essay-writing tips. Finally, AIR helps to promote the IR program by holding an information session for first year students who would like to hear from upper-year students about their experiences with the program.
