Directorates and Program Offices

USCIS is divided into directorates and program offices.

Directorates are director led departments in charge of multiple divisions. For example the Refugee, Asylum, and International Operations Directorate linked to the left.   

Programs Offices have a specific function and are led by a chief. For example see the Office of Citizenship to the left.  

You can find information on:

  • The mission, leadership, organization and goals of key directorates and program offices within USCIS on the links to the left
  • USCIS leadership and organizational chart under Related Links to the right

Please note, the About US Directorates and Program Offices pages only include details on specific office functions. If you are looking for the location of a field or international office, please see our Find a USCIS Office section.
