SUSI for Student Leaders are intensive short-term academic programs whose purpose is to provide groups of undergraduate student leaders with a deeper understanding of the United States while simultaneously enhancing their leadership skills.  The program will examine the history and participation of women in public life in the United States and focus on two major areas: developing participants’ leadership skills in areas such as critical thinking, communication, decision-making, and managerial abilities; and, placing these abilities in the context of the history and participation of women in U.S. politics, economics, culture, and society.  The program will also examine the historical domestic progress towards women’s equality in the United States, the current domestic successes and challenges to women in a variety of fields, and current challenges in global women’s issues.

The five-week program consists of a balanced series of seminar discussions, readings, group presentations, and lectures.  The coursework and classroom activities will be complemented by educational travel, site visits, leadership activities, and volunteer opportunities within the local community.  Each of the four institutes will include a four week academic residency component and a one week integrated study tour.  As part of the academic residency, participants will have the opportunity to engage in educational and cultural activities outside of the classroom.  During the Women’s Leadership Conference, more than 80 SUSI participants from different parts of the world will have opportunities to network with one another and to meet with inspiring U.S. women leaders.
