Students to Represent College on International Council

Assumption College has  announced that Emma Salachi ’19 and Riley Sipp ’21 have been appointed to represent the College as members of the Worcester World Affairs Council (WWAC), a local nonprofit that seeks to “educate, inspire, and engage its members in international affairs and to foster dialogue between local civic leaders and invited experts in the field.”

“Joining the monthly events held at the Worcester Club affords our students the opportunity to meet others interested in global issues and international affairs” said Dean of Undergraduate Studies Eloise Knowlton, Ph.D. “WWAC members are distinguished professionals in a broad range of fields, some having considerable international experience themselves.”

Salachi is an Honors student dual majoring in global studies and Italian. Sipp is a double major in global studies and political science, with a minor in environmental science. The two students have demonstrated excellence in their academic studies with a keen interest in international relations. In addition to engaging in dialogue with experts, their membership will also provide a number of networking opportunities.

According to the WWAC, it was founded in 1958 and is one of more than 95 councils which are spread across the United States. The WWAC states that members include academics, professionals and business people, all of whom share a desire to gain a greater understanding of global issues, and to discuss international relations with well-informed individuals.
