Four of these Institutes will be for groups of 18 foreign university level faculty, focusing on the themes of Journalism and Media, U.S. Culture and Society, U.S. Foreign Policy, and U.S. National Security Policymaking, each with a total duration of six weeks. One additional Institute for a group of 20 foreign secondary educators will be a five-week general survey course on secondary education and the United States.
