Diplomatic Encounters Series

Launched in 2015, International House and UChicago Global joined forces with the Chicago Consular Corps to expand the Diplomatic Encounters Series to better connect the UChicago community with representatives of diplomatic missions from around Chicago and across the nation. The series aims to provide a venue to hear from leading diplomats, engage them in open dialogue, and come to a better understanding of the issues, challenges, and opportunities facing countries around the world. Programs are held throughout the year and include the annual consular reception hosted by the Office of the President.
