Maintaining an Active Voice in World Affairs

Through Upstate International’s newest initiative, World Affairs Council Upstate (WACU), we have become a member of the World Affairs Councils of America (WACA).  Help us to continue to promote the Upstate’s global identity, sustain international engagement in our region, and foster a broad perspective of our ever increasing inter-dependent world by sponsoring, donating, or becoming a member of Upstate International.

Dedicated to fostering a deep understanding of global affairs and cultures, and supported by individuals and businesses, Upstate International engages globally-minded South Carolinians directly with each other and with elected officials, civic leaders, and professionals from around the world. Upstate International works with partner organizations to reach all generations and sectors and is always looking to enhance those partnerships and collaborations.


“The World Affairs Councils of America is the largest nonprofit  grassroots organization in the United States dedicated to educating and engaging Americans on global issues with nearly 100 councils across 40 states reaching more than half a million people a year.” Learn more at
