We connect New Mexico and the world by engaging, educating, and inspiring people as responsible global citizens. We promote an in-depth understanding of globalization — including the responsibilities of the global citizen — and U.S. foreign policy through our community education and high school/college education programs.
Through our partnership with the U.S. State Department, we welcomed over 400 international visitors to northern New Mexico in 2019. We connect ideas with action, with a membership of former ambassadors, foreign service officers, executives, and an engaged public seeking insight into these complex times.
