About Us

As a leader in international understanding and civic diplomacy, the Iowa International Center enriches lives and builds pathways to prosperity. We make the world a kinder, safer place through welcoming visitors and removing language barriers.

Founded in 1938, the Iowa International Center began by welcoming and providing safety for refugees fleeing Germany and Poland. Since then, Iowa International Center has provided personal and professional opportunities linking Iowans with people from around the world.

The heart of the Iowa International Center’s work is in connecting people and changing lives through educational and cultural resources to Iowans, new Iowans, and international visitors in Iowa. Our work provides economic and cultural leadership resulting in Iowa being a more inclusive and welcoming place to live, work and raise a family.
