Mission Statement

The Mission of the World Affairs Council of Wilmington Inc. is to provide a forum in Wilmington, Delaware for thought-leaders and intellectually-curious citizens to hear from foreign and domestic leaders about world affairs.


T he World Affairs Council of Wilmington was organized in 1967 to provide a forum to discuss international affairs. Since its founding, the Council has brought several hundred speakers to Wilmington including former heads of state, ambassadors, senior level government officials, leading academics and others who have influence in the international arena. Through the World Affairs Council, members and the public have had the opportunity to meet, hear, and question these distinguished guests.

The Council carries out its mission through sponsored public and private programs, and through joint programs with The University of Delaware and other organizations.

Private dinners are off-the-record to promote openness by the speakers, and include time to meet and talk with the speakers individually prior to dinner.

Public programs generally include a presentation and question and answer session with a large audience. Public programs may be held in and around Wilmington and at the University of Delaware in coordination with the "Global Agenda" lecture series.
