Royce HallThe International Visitors Bureau (IVB) serves as a liaison between UCLA faculty/administrators and international academic and professional leaders by developing appropriate contacts. Through these contacts, IVB provides opportunities to build intellectual exchanges and strategic international alliances.

Established in 1966, the UCLA International Visitors Bureau (IVB) is recognized nationally as one of the oldest and most respected university-sponsored programs of its kind in the country. It schedules meetings, seminars, luncheons, and campus tours for more than 800 visitors to the UCLA campus each year. The IVB provides comprehensive programming for outstanding leaders in government, politics, education, science, labor relations, and other fields by incorporating the intellectual, cultural, ethnic, and linguistic diversity of the UCLA campus.

The staff and volunteers of the IVB coordinate appointments with appropriate members of the administration and faculty for visitors sponsored by the International Visitors Program of the United States Department of State, the International Visitors Council of Los Angeles, other universities, corporations, foundations, government agencies, and members of the Consular Corps.

UCLA increases its international visibility through the hospitality that it extends to international visitors and benefits from the professional exchanges with many of the world's economic, political, and social leaders. Since its establishment, the IVB has hosted a wealth of world renowned dignitaries, including British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, President Frederik de Klerk of South Africa, Prime Minister Joseph K. Kolfligoh of Togo, and President Rafael Callejoas of Honduras.

This form of worldwide outreach, heightened by the development of the Internet, brings UCLA's affiliation to a global scale.
