The International Visitor Leadership Program is designed to build mutual understanding between the U.S. and other countries through carefully designed visits that reflect the participants’ professional interests and support U.S. foreign policy goals. Participants are established or potential foreign opinion makers in government, public policy, media, education, labor, the arts and other key fields. More than 200 current or former heads of state are alumni of the International Visitor Leadership Program, and more than 1,500 are current or former cabinet-level ministers.
