Who We Are

  • An international affairs Book Club explores ideas from today’s authors, and free DailyChatter
    and What in the World Quiz email programs cover the latest global happenings.
  • A wide variety of summer study programs and local school activities, including a large Model UN competition in partnership with Florida Gulf Coast University, broaden student international affairs knowledge.
