For American society to thrive in a globalized and interdependent world, its young citizens need to develop a well-informed and nuanced understanding of the international landscape. CSIS works with secondary, undergraduate, and graduate educational institutions through a variety of programs to help both students and educators comprehend the complexities of the global environment.
CSIS frequently hosts educational institutions and student groups at our D.C. headquarters. Programs can range from an informal visit and short introduction to the world of think tanks and CSIS’s contribution in generating global policy solutions to formal week-long programs incorporating intensive seminars and active learning where students put their ideas and global knowledge to the test. Learn more about the variety of customized programming we offer here.
Every day, CSIS experts product timely and insightful resources for policymakers to explore the context of geopolitical issues and possible solutions. We have created a curated collection of these resources specifically for secondary and undergraduate educators, and are creating classroom guides that provide guidance on how they might be best used with students across a variety of subject areas and courses.
