The five-week Institute, focused on religious pluralism and democracy, is run in cooperation with the International Center for Contemporary Education, with funding from the U.S. Department of State (Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs). Twice a year, students from the Middle East and Southeast Asia are introduced to central elements of U.S. history, society, institutions, and democracy through a focus on American religious freedom and interreligious dialogue.

The DI will host its next SUSI, Jaunary 9-February 13, 2016, with 20 students from Southeast Asia.
