SUSI For Global Scholars

US Flag, US Department of State Logo, SUSI logo


The Study of the U.S. Institutes for Global Scholars is a U.S. Department of State sponsored program for mid-career foreign scholars and educators designed to improve the teaching about the United States in academic institutions abroad. Under the Mansfield Center's umbrella, 72 scholars travel to the University of Montana, Arizona State University, New York University, and the University of Delaware to join one of four Institutes focusing on American Culture, U.S. Foreign Policy, Journalism and the Media, and Workforce Development.

Eighteen of these scholars visit Montana to study key issues in Youth, Workforce Development, and Closing the Skills Gap. They connect with peers at community colleges, job corps, businesses, and community organizations to learn about the future of work in a global world.
