What is America's role in the world®?

What is America’s role in the world? More importantly, what should it be? On Thursday, March 5 and Friday, March 6, the IU Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies will bring diplomats, journalists, politicians, and scholars to the IU Bloomington campus to debate these questions and engage with globally-minded students.

Recent guests include former Secretary of Energy Ernest J. Moniz, former US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, former Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, Senator Todd Young, the New York Times’ Carol Giacomo, and NPR correspondent Dina Temple-Raston. We hope you’ll join us.

A student experience

Created with the student experience in mind, America's Role in the World addresses 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.
