Meridian International Center, a not-for-profit organization, promotes international understanding through the exchange of people, ideas, and the arts. The Meridian Center for Cultural Diplomacy (MCCD) organizes, presents, and circulates a variety of high-profile, international exhibitions each year, sending these to museums and cultural institutions around the country and the world.

The GlobalConnect division was established in 2001 to pursue new business opportunities for the organization. The majority of our projects have involved the development and implementation of exchange programs for professionals and university and high-school students, sponsored by U.S. embassies around the world, U.S. government agencies and private-sector firms. Our programs cover a wide array of issues—some recent topics include U.S. foreign policy, youth leadership, empowering women entrepreneurs, human rights, journalism training, women as political leaders, interfaith issues and the US election process. In addition, we continually develop grant proposals (solicited and unsolicited) for government agencies and foundations for projects in the coming year.
