Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSIs) for Secondary Educators are post-graduate level academic programs for secondary educators designed to strengthen curricula and to improve the teaching about the United States in academic institutions abroad. These Institutes are comprised of a five-week academic residency and one to two weeks of educational travel to a different region of the United States. During the Institutes, scholars engage in rigorous academic coursework and panel discussions, interact and establish networks with American scholars, meet with experts in respective disciplines, visit civic institutions, and in some cases, participate in research symposia and conferences.
Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSI) for Student Leaders are five-to-six-week academic programs during the summer (July-August) designed for foreign undergraduate students between the ages of 18 and 25 to improve their understanding of the United States and to develop their leadership skills. Institutes include a four-week academic residency consisting of interactive classroom activities, discussions, lectures, readings, site visits, and workshops; a one-week educational study tour to a different region of the United States; leadership skills-building activities; community service; and opportunities to interact with their American peers on a college campus. Each Institute includes approximately 20 participants from selected countries. This program is funded by the U.S. Department of State in collaboration with the U.S. Embassy to Belgium.
