About Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy:
Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy (UCCD) believes that everyone has the right, even the responsibility to help shape U.S. foreign policy one handshake at a time. Since 1967, we at UCCD have fostered citizen diplomacy by creating meaningful person-to-person interactions with individuals from other countries and cultures.
UCCD works with the U.S. Department of State's International Visitor Leadership Program and other exchange programs to welcome hundreds of emerging leaders from around the world to Utah to meet with like-minded professionals, businesses, government agencies, and organizations to exchange best practices and create networks while experiencing Utah's unique culture.
UCCD invites the local community to attend the World Affairs Lecture Series, Foreign Policy Association Great Decisions course, and our Fireside Chats live podcast recordings where our lectures, conversations, and dialogues provide insight into critical national and global issues, shaping public discourse.
Our Young Diplomats of Utah program immerses youth, age 14 - 32, in international relations in preparation for becoming Utah's future leaders.
UCCD offers a dynamic working environment with ample opportunities to learn about global issues and cultures while creating professional networks with international, national, and local individuals.
