We are experts in and ambassadors of international exchange.

Through our advocacy efforts, partnerships with like-minded organizations, and public awareness campaigns, we share our passion for, and help others understand the value of, intercultural exchange. Whether it’s supporting initiatives, viewpoints, and policies we believe in or helping to facilitate our stakeholders’ advocacy efforts, we work together to create a global climate that is favorable to student exchange.

Today, our work is more important than ever.

Student exchange is the finest investment in public diplomacy the U.S. can make. We believe it is our duty to see that the relationship between national security and exchange is carefully balanced. The U.S. must continue to welcome young people from abroad who come here to study, work, and volunteer, to ensure that our students will continue to be welcomed as they go abroad.
