Western's Model United Nations team was started during the 2004-2005 academic year by Kristina Mader, and quickly grew from a small group of 5 students in early 2005 to over 50 committed members by 2013. The club has won awards at WWU for its growth, leadership development, and consistency in providing students an opportunity to participate in MUN and gain a greater sense of their global citizenship.

In 2011, the Model United Nations team was transformed into the International Affairs Association, which while still retaining and managing the team, also expanded its services to more than just Model UN. As part of this transformation, the IAA left Western's Associated Students and joined the University's Departmentally Related Activities Committee as a probational member. Since this invitation, the association has risen to full membership status and has formalized its relationship with the committee.

Starting in the 2013-2014 academic year, the Association will be organized as the managing association for three bodies; Model United Nations, Borderline, and Services & Programs.
