International Visitor Leadership Program
As our world gets smaller and more interconnected, individuals, industry, and governments increasingly need to communicate and collaborate.
The International Visitor Leadership Program (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.
The program’s distinguished alumni include such individuals as Margaret Thatcher, Anwar Sadat, Giscard D’Estaing, Indira Gandhi, Julius Nyerere, F.W. deKlerk, Tony Blair, and Nicolas Sarkozy.
In the past year, nearly 300 officially sponsored IVLP visitors in Denver have come through Denver. All of these visitors are emerging leaders in government, business, arts and culture, journalism, and education in their home countries.
