We promote respect and understanding between the people of Utah and other nations.

what we do


The Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy believes that everyone has the right, even the responsibility to help shape U.S. foreign relations “one handshake at a time,” and since 1967, we at UCCD have fostered citizen diplomacy by creating meaningful person-to-person interactions, hosting conversation about current world affairs, and empowering youth to explore the world.
