We connect New Mexico and the world by engaging and educating people to become 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, this year we will welcome over 425 international visitors to northern New Mexico. We connect ideas with action, through a membership of former ambassadors, foreign service officers, executives, and an engaged public seeking insight into these complex times.
We are the World Affairs Councils of America Council of the Month for September, 2018. We’re thrilled by the honor!
