About Recruitment

Recruitment is a two-week period early each semester where Potential New Members attend and participate in our signature events to learn more about SIR as an organization and our members. At the same time, SIR members are given an opportunity to meet and learn more about you! Events are a mixture of business professional and business casual and invite Potential New Members to explore various aspects of international affairs. Potential New Members must attend one information session and all signature events (excluding optional social) and submit an application to be considered for membership. We are excited to meet you!
