What is CCWA?

Founded in 2010, the Collegiate Council on World Affairs (CCWA) is a student organization at The Ohio State University, dedicated to the education, discussion, and appreciation of all things international affairs.

Our purpose is to provide students with a forum in which they can develop their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. We do this through a variety of activities, including our Model UN conferences, weekly meetings, lectures from distinguished guest speakers, university events, and much more!

“A 100% Guaranteed Good Time”
— Our Club Motto
