The Northern Nevada International Center’s main objective is to foster better understanding between people through various public diplomacy programs, language and culture projects and foreign policy forums. NNIC serves as a resource for local residents as well as visitors interested in international activities and events.  Key programs include organizing programs for international visitors through the U.S. Department of State and other federal agencies; providing interpretation and translation services in over 60 languages; and organizing educational events and activities for the university and general community.

The concept of citizen diplomacy is strongly embedded in the work of the Northern Nevada International Center (NNIC).  For over three decades, this non-profit organization has hosted thousands of visitors from almost every corner of the globe.   At its core, the most important aspect of NNIC’s work involves members of our community who host visiting delegations in their homes and at their places of work, beginning a dialogue that often lasts for years.  This makes volunteers the most valuable resource to combat stereotypes that exist both on the sides of the visitors and also on our side.

We host international visitors, students, scholars and professional from the following exchange programs:
