USCET Welcomes 20 East Asian Student Leaders from China, Japan, and Korea for the 2011 Study of the US Institute on US Foreign Policy

July 23, 2011

Topic(s):

USCET is excited to host the Study of the US Institute on US Foreign Policy for East Asian Leaders for the second year in a row.  This year's program will be directed by Dr. Balbina Hwang, of Georgetown University. 

The curriculum of the Institute is designed to enhance students' understanding of the historical foundations of U.S. actions abroad and to empower them as leaders through experiential learning. Students will engage in an intensive four-week program of classroom lectures, community service activities, and cultural experiences, and will be introduced to U.S. foreign policy as an academic discipline. They will be immersed in American society and culture and exposed simultaneously to contemporary issues that concern the world generally and East Asia in particular. It is the Institute's hope that students will benefit academically and personally from the lectures and discussions with a dynamic group of foreign policy leaders and scholars, including experts on the U.S., China, Korea, Japan, and East Asian relations.

Leadership development programming, community service activities, and field trips will be interspersed throughout the program. Students will end their stay in the US with a week-long study tour to Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids, Michigan and New York City, where they attended additional lectures related to the Institute themes. Once the Institute is complete, participants will be given the opportunity to maintain contact through an alumni network, and will be encouraged to collaborate on future regional initiatives.

USCET很高兴能够再次举办东亚学生领袖美国外交政策研习营。本年的研习营将由乔治城大学教授Balbina Hwang指导。

课程安排旨在提高学生对美国海外行动的历史基础,并通过实践学习加强学生的领袖能力。参加研习营的学生将会在四周内接受课堂教学、社会服务以及文化体验等强化教育,同时学习美国外交政策学科。他们将沉浸于美国社会和文化中,并接触一些当今世界,特别是东亚地区普遍关注的问题。期望学生能够通过与精通美国、中国、韩国、日本和东亚关系的外交政策领袖和学者的讲课和讨论交流,从学业和个人角度都能有所收获。

领导能力发展培训、社区服务活动、和实地考察将贯穿整个项目。第五周,学生将前往密西根州的安阿伯和大急流城以及纽约市参加研习营相关的讲座。研习营结束后,学生可以通过校友联络网与共同参与项目的同学保持联系,我们也鼓励学生在未来进一步合作。
