ISC’s mission is to promote international relationships through citizen diplomacy and enrich Alabama’s education, commerce and global awareness. This mission is supported by the core values of respect, friendships, collaboration, lifelong learning, multicultural diversity and globalization.
Citizen diplomacy is the concept that every global citizen has the right, even the responsibility, to engage across cultures and create shared understanding through meaningful person-to-person interactions and exchanges. Exchanges refers to the sharing of ideas, cultural traditions, and experiences. It is, in its simplest form, interaction. Citizen diplomacy creates economic opportunity, contributes to peace and stability, and develops leadership skills through global problem solving.
