Boston University International Affairs Association

The Boston University International Affairs Organization, known affectionately as BUIAA, is the largest student organization on Boston University's Charles River campus and maintains both a focus on global affairs and an affinity for community service in the Greater Boston area. BUIAA is home to a diverse group of students from all schools and colleges within BU, and presents those involved with a myriad of opportunities to engage in, including multicultural events and educational opportunities within the world of foreign affairs at large. Additionally, BUIAA holds weekly meetings that can take the form of discussions, simulations, debates and much more.


BUIAA also encompasses several other groups that hold their own weekly meetings including BU’s Model UN Travel Team, a teaching centered group known as Global Civics, and the International Relations Review. Throughout the year, BUIAA hosts three thought-provoking MUN conferences, BosMUN, BeanMUN and BarMUN, each of which present additional chances to get involved and gain valuable experience. Essentially, BUIAA is a multifaceted organization that strives to provide an incredible range of opportunities for students with any interest pertaining to international affairs.
