Since 1967, UCCD has been a nonpartisan, private sector partner with the U.S. Department of State s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP). This program, which is administered by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, invites emerging leaders from around the world to the U.S. for short-term professional programs.
