DI Program Featured in State Department Video

In order to promote its Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI), the U.S. State Department recently released a video featuring the Dialogue Institute's Winter 2015 Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSI) for Student Leaders on Religious Pluralism. Twenty students from five different countries in Southeast Asia participated, and were interviewed in Washington, DC at the completion of the DI's five-week program, January 10-February 14.

YSEALI is an initiative of President Obama with which the Dialogue Institute now actively works in conjunction with its hosting of the semi-annual SUSI programs (the second is held during the summer for students from the Middle East).

Note that the video, as a recruiting tool for YSEALI, emphasizes only the leadership development aspect of the program; the DI's overall focus is on religious pluralism and dialogue training. Click here for more info about the DI's SUSI programs.
