The Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) Global Affairs Club (GAC) is an organization perfect for anyone looking to enhance their skills in speaking, writing, debate, research, and networking.
GAC attends multiple Model United Nations and Model NATO conferences each semester, which are hosted by universities around the country.
At these conferences, club members act as a delegate of a nation, working with delegates representing other nations to tackle major relevant world problems.
Conferences take place in locales such as Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Washington, D.C. GAC is a great club for Global Security and Intelligence (GSIS) majors, or any student with an interest in international relations: engineering, aviation, and business majors are all represented within the club.
Representing ERAU on an intercollegiate level, GAC has won multiple awards in competitions with students from universities such as UC Berkeley, Stanford, Northeastern University, and the Air Force Academy.
GAC received the first Undergraduate Research Institute (URI) E-Prize grant ever awarded to an organization within the College of Security and Intelligence, and continues to be a face of ERAU’s Security and Intelligence, Engineering, and Aviation programs to other universities nationwide.
