The Visiting International Scholars (VIS) program was created more than a decade ago for academics and professional journalists and other communicators who wish to spend at least a semester, but usually a year, in the school and the University. Participants learn a great deal not only about their specialty in mass communication but also about U.S. culture by living in Chapel Hill. For a number of participants, the program brings them to the United States for the first time. Other participants have visited many times.
