The Dialogue Institute (DI) was recently awarded funding from the U.S. State Department to continue its Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSI) for Student Leaders on Religious Pluralism. The renewal funding enables the DI to host two more Institutes focused on the study of religious pluralism and democracy in America, one this coming summer (July-August) with 20 students from the Middle East, and another next winter (January-February) with 20 Southeast Asian students.

The DI just completed its 9th SUSI this past winter (click here to see a State Department promotional video featuring our students!) and has been hosting Institutes since 2010 in collaboration with the International Center for Contemporary Education. SUSI is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and its Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
