We connect New Mexico and the world by engaging and inspiring global citizens through dialogue, education, and cross-cultural exchange. 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. We envision a community in which New Mexicans, through cross-cultural exchange, engagement, and education, act as global citizens, applying a firm knowledge of global economics, politics, cultures, and leaders for the betterment of Santa Fe, New Mexico, the United States, and the globe. Read our 2020-22 Strategic Plan!
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.
