SIU hosts central Asia students studying public policy

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

Southern Illinois University Carbondale is once again hosting 20 of central Asia's most promising undergraduate students for the next four weeks to study the nation's political system and gain a better understanding of southern Illinois. 

The students will arrive on campus June 20 and will spend the next four weeks participating in a variety of classroom activities and lectures featuring university officials. The students will also sit in on classes and gain insights from faculty in the political science, history, economics, and philosophy departments as well as the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute and the SIU School of Law. 

The SIU Carbondale program will cover a range of subjects necessary to understand the functioning of American government, politics and public policy making. The American studies will include democracy, political culture, democratic diversity, the creation of a civil society built on an extensive network of non-profit organizations, the U.S Constitutional framework and the Rule of Law.
