Since 1967, the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy (UCCD) has been an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting global understanding and respect between the people of Utah and other nations. As a private sector partner with the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program, UCCD welcomes over 450 International Visitors to Utah each year for short-term professional and cultural exchanges. These Visitors are current and emerging leaders in business, law, government, media, education, science, and the arts, to name a few. UCCD believes that everyone has the right, even the responsibility to help shape U.S. foreign relations “one handshake at a time,” and since 1967, they have fostered citizen diplomacy by creating meaningful person-to-person interactions with individuals from other countries and cultures.
