Two visitors from Indonesia will be meeting with various Cleveland organizations to learn about the rights and responsibilities of a free press in a democracy. In addition, they will be analyzing the role that investigative journalists play in U.S. society by raising awareness on social concerns and reporting on difficult issues. One special area of study will be on the impact of social media, new communication technologies, citizen journalism, and alternative forms of investigative reporting.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 250 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural and educational ties with the rest of the world.
