Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSI) Program for Secondary School Educators

SUSI programs are designed to provide foreign educators and researchers the opportunity to deepen their understanding of U.S. society, culture, values, and institutions through intensive academic programs at U.S. Universities and study tours throughout the country.

Program Details: SUSI for Secondary Educators will take place over the course of five weeks beginning early June. Three Institutes for Secondary School Educators will be offered, two with a focus on classroom teachers and the third with a focus on administrators including teacher trainers, curriculum developers, textbook writers, and ministry of education officials, among others. The Institute will be conducted in English and take place in a multinational group of 20 participants. The Department of State will cover travel and ground transportation, as well as book, cultural, housing, subsistence, mailing, and incidental allowances for all participants.
