Study of the U.S. Institutes on Religious Pluralism in the United States


The Dialogue Institute administers and hosts two different programs called Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSI) on Religious Pluralism in the United States:

The Study of the U.S. Institutes are sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, providing five-to-six week academic experiences for groups of international undergraduate students and scholars which aim to promote a better understanding of American people and institutions; explore the diversity and culture of the United States; and develop or expand curricula on U.S. studies in colleges and universities overseas.

A variety of SUSI programs are offered nationally, but the Dialogue Institute is the only organization currently selected by the State Department to host Institutes focused on the theme of religious pluralism.
