WIIS welcomes new national chapters–they enhance and expand our professional network of individuals in peace and global security and related fields. WIIS national chapters extend our reach so members can access opportunities for professional development and mentoring programs, events, and support at the regional and local levels.

What WIIS Chapters Do

A WIIS national chapter creates a diverse and supportive community on campus, offers career-building professional development and mentoring programs, and advances the next generation of young leaders in the international peace and security field.

Student Research and Fellowships

Educational institutions with WIIS Chapters have the opportunity to develop tailored fellowship programs to give highly accomplished student members the opportunity to explore and publish research related to topics in international peace and security.

Public/Private Partnerships

WIIS Chapters use their network and capacities to employ multifaceted partnerships between diverse sectors to innovate programs supporting objectives key to advancing peace and security policy and research. Educational institutions with established WIIS Chapters have been successful in supporting students and furthering their partnerships with external government and private organizations.  

WIIS Chapters And Global Internships
