INTERNATIONAL VISITOR LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
MCIV assists in facilitating the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. The IVLP is the U.S. Department of State’s premier professional exchange program. Launched in 1940, the IVLP is a professional exchange program that seeks to build mutual understanding between the U.S. and other nations through carefully designed short-term visits to the U.S. for current and emerging foreign leaders. These visits reflect the International Visitors’ professional interests and support the foreign policy goals of the United States.
