Claremont International Relations Society 

Claremont International Relations Society is a student-run organization focused on bringing together students and faculty members of the undergraduate colleges of the Claremont University Consortium that share an interest in international relations and current global events through discourse and lectures, in order to advance international awareness on campus and among the student body. CIRS is open to students who are interested not only in careers in the international relations area, but also who value the importance of international events in everyday modern life.


CIRS maintains an Open Member Policy such that all interested students of the Claremont Colleges are welcome to join.

CIRS acts as an advocacy and community organization for students who are interested in international relations. We have an elected board consisting of president, vice president, treasurer, academics chair, 5C outreach chair, and a social chair. We maintain an email distribution list of approximately 250 students, but all students are welcome to attend our events.
