Public Affairs

General Information

The Public Affairs Section is responsible for media relations and public diplomacy programs designed to promote mutual understanding and cooperation between Omani and American individuals and institutions. The section conducts a full range of cultural and educational activities, including lectures, workshops, exhibits and artistic programs. 

American Corners
American Corners are partnerships between the Embassy and Omani host institutions. Corners are open to the general public and are usually located at universities. The extensive library collections and lectures about America at the Corners help Omanis learn more about American culture and the outstanding educational and business opportunities in the United States.

Educational Exchange Programs
The Public Affairs Section administers educational exchange programs. Although opportunities for scholarships are few, large numbers of students travel to the US each year to take advantage of our highly advanced and frequently specialized educational programs.

The Information Resource Center (IRC)
The Information Resource Center (IRC) provides services to keep up with with the electronic information revolution. The IRC increasingly relies on on-line or laser-disk databases. The Director of the IRC is trained to help you make use of these technologies, and is happy to respond to any inquiry regarding what is available.
