Our Mission

To be the leader in preparing Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky communities, individually and collectively, to thrive in the 21st century global environment by promoting international understanding, education, engagement, and cooperation.


Our Vision

A culturally aware and respectful citizenry engaged with the world.


Programs that Matter

Our stand out program areas provide opportunities to bridge Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky with the world, serve as global citizens, and elevate the understanding of world affairs.

My husband and I strive to be informed and welcoming citizen diplomats and have been very impressed with the community involvement that the World Affairs Council offers to ensure and foster the knowledge, exposure and opportunity to do so in our local schools, business communities and public at large. My children delight in the exposure to different cultures, ways of thinking and languages. I like knowing that as an organization, we’re making a meaningful impact at home and abroad.”
