History

Founded in the early 1980s as a community organization dedicated to international exchange, CIVIC aims to promote international cooperation, foster mutual understanding across national borders, facilitate the creation of worldwide professional networks, and contribute to the global cultural education of area students and community residents. In 1986, CIVIC became a full member of Global Ties U.S. (formerly National Council of International Visitors) an organization that collaborates with the US Department of State to design professional development programs for international visitors in over 100 U.S. cities. CIVIC’s citizen diplomacy efforts help our visitors better understand the diversity of American life and culture while also providing Iowans with opportunities to better understand the world.

 

The Council for International Visitors to Iowa Cities is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization
