What is America's role in the world®?

More importantly, what should it be? On Thursday, March 21 and Friday, March 22, the Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies brought diplomats, journalists, politicians, and scholars to the IU Bloomington campus to answer these questions.

Created with the student experience in mind, the fourth annual conference on America's Role in the World® addressed major foreign policy challenges with an eye toward a deeper understanding of how they affect and are affected by domestic developments.

A lot of people ask us what the conference is like for Hamilton Lugar School students, and the answer is simple.

Our students are part of the action.
