Organizational history:
The Alaska World Affairs Council (AWAC) is a non-partisan educational organization working to stimulate interest in world affairs by hosting lectures, forums, and other events for the public at large and for students from elementary through university levels. The Council was founded in 1958 by Evangeline Atwood to provide a forum for discussion of foreign policy topics.  AWAC’s work expanded to include additional programs such as the Great Decisions Series, a discussion group in cooperation with the Foreign Policy Association, a distinguished lecturer series, a summer ambassador program, regularly hosting speaker events with guests who have international backgrounds or expertise in international issues, student programs and scholarships and providing community networking for individuals and organizations interested in global affairs.
