SUSI Summer 2019: Exciting Plans for the Future

During this past June and July, FIUTS was honored to host 19 students from Brazil, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, and Tunisia as part of the first cohort of the Study of the U.S. Institute (SUSI) on Youth, Education, and Closing the Skills Gap. We are thrilled to share more about their program and the projects that they plan to deliver in their home communities now that their time in the U.S. has come to an end. Click through the slides below to learn about what they have planned!

The Study of the U.S. Institutes promote a better understanding of the people, institutions, and culture of the United States among international students, teachers, and scholars. Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSIs) are short-term academic programs for groups of undergraduate leaders, educators, and scholars from around the world. Hosted by academic institutions throughout the United States, these 5- to 6-week Institutes include an intensive academic residency and an integrated educational study tour. Extracurricular cultural and community activities help to broaden the participants’ understanding of U.S. society. See more at:
