First-year students intending to pursue international relations as a significant component of their academic program at Syracuse University are invited to participate in the International Relations Living Learning Community (IRLLC). The community is designed to develop an awareness of international issues through focused discussion and activities, and to expose students to relevant opportunities and resources. Students enroll together in IRP 100 International Relations Living Learning Community in the Fall semester, and course activities are linked with co-curricular and residence hall experiences. In addition, students are encouraged to attend lectures, cross-cultural workshops, and other special activities in conjunction with the International Relations Program.  Each year the IRLLC offers opportunities to engage with local organizations such as the International Center of Syracuse, the Center for New Americans, the Great Law of Peace Center.

  • Open to first-year undergraduate SU students.
  • Open to selected upper-class students serving as peer mentors.
  • Students register in the Fall semester for IRP 100 International Relations Living Learning Community (1 credit). 

The International Relations Living Learning Community also provides a leadership opportunity for IRLLC alumni to serve as peer mentors.  IRLLC peer mentor duties include working with the instructor of IRP 100 to provide course support and participate in scheduled events and activities. The IRLLC peer mentor coordinates with resident advisors assigned to the IRLLC by the Office of Residence Life and earns a stipend as well as 1-academic experience credit for the teaching practicum.
