Like American Corner programs elsewhere in the region, the Window on America Centers are designed to provide up-to-date information on the United States and to augment the English-language collections of the host libraries. The mission of each center is to promote mutual understanding between the United States and Ukraine. The Centers accomplish this by: providing information about U.S. history, government, society, and values to Ukrainian audiences; providing access to Internet resources; and serving as focal points for U.S. assistance and exchange programs.
Each Window on America Center hosts a variety of events designed to bring Americans and Ukrainians closer together. Regular talks by U.S. Speakers, Embassy staff, Fulbright scholars, Peace Corps Volunteers, and other Americans allow U.S. and Ukrainian citizens to interact. The Window on America Centers also provide a venue for the Embassy’s outreach activities, offering a distribution point for the Department of State’s Office of International Information Programs (IIP) publications, a meeting place for USG-program alumni, and a host for photo exhibits, visiting speakers, film series, and other events that promote a better understanding of the U.S.
