Sigma Iota Rho is the national honor society for students of international affairs, founded in 1989 by faculty and scholars affiliated with the International Studies Association. Our Alpha Chi chapter at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University was established in 1995 by Ambassador and Professor-of-Practice Goodwin Cooke, who served as Director of Undergraduate Studies in International Relations from 1991 to 2004.
