Over the thirty years of its existence, the Conference heard papers on the new internationalism, the end of White Imperialism, the British Commonwealth in world affairs, ehtnic tensions in the modern world, the nation in the future, The Middle East, and the Pacific and the New World Order. Prominent academics, politicians and businessmen were members of the Institute while at United College, including Lloyd Axworthy, Arthur Lower, Serling Lyon, Kenneth McNaught, William Norrie, Margaret Prang, and Peter Gordon White.
