PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:
The Study of the U.S. Branch has sponsored Student Leader Institutes since 2003. A total of 21 Institutes for Student Leaders will take place in 2019, four of which are for Student Leaders from Europe on the themes of Civic Engagement, Entrepreneurship and Economic Development, Journalism and Media, and Youth, Education, and Closing the Skills Gap.

Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSIs) for Student Leaders are intensive short-term academic programs whose purpose is to provide groups of undergraduate student leaders with a deeper understanding of the United States while simultaneously enhancing their leadership skills. The five-week Institutes will consist of a balanced series of seminar discussions, readings, group presentations and lectures. The coursework and classroom activities will be complemented by educational travel, site visits, leadership activities, and volunteer opportunities within the local community. Each Institute will have 20 participants and will include a four-week academic residency component and a one-week integrated study tour to another region of the United States. During the academic residency, participants will also have the opportunity to engage in educational and cultural activities outside of the classroom.

INSTITUTE DESCRIPTION:
