About Sigma Iota Rho

Sigma Iota Rho was founded inn 1983 by William Olson, the dean of the School of International Service at American University in Washington, D.C. At this time, no organization was available to honor the achievements and outstanding academic records of international studies students. The central mission of SIR is "to promote and reward scholarship and service among students and practitioners of international studies, international affairs and global studies and to foster integrity and creative performance in the conduct of world affairs." Now, there are over 140 chapters at colleges and universities in the United States and abroad.
