Offered in the summer, this program brings 18 scholars from 18 different countries to the United States to experience journalism, media and culture. From visiting media outlets in Atlanta, Georgia the District of Columbia and San Francisco, to seeing a unique sector of American culture by visiting the Amish in Holmes County, Ohio, last summers SUSI scholars had a full schedule of travel and experiences not to mention lectures and workshops designed to share journalistic practices and perspectives cross-culturally.

by IIJ Ambassador, Assistant Professor, & Director of IIJ

The U.S. Department of State selected the IIJ at Ohio University to run the 2010 Journalism & Media summer program! It is called the 2010 Study of the United States Institute (SUSI) for Journalism and Media scholars. The school and IIJ scheduled innovative research and pedagogy sessions to enlighten the educators to think in new ways about teaching journalism, media research, and other principles of this ever-changing profession.

Participants in Study of the U.S. Institutes are among the approximately 30,000 individuals who participate in exchanges managed by the Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) each year. Other ECA exchange programs include the Fulbright Program and the International Visitor Leadership Program. Through a range of academic and professional exchanges, the Bureau seeks to increase mutual understanding between the United States and other countries.
