Indonesia Program



The Indonesia Program at American University is an attempt to emulate the success of American Corners in Indonesia: providing the means to bridge understanding about America for Indonesians.  The School of International Service at American University was chosen to host the Indonesia Program for 2013 due to its strategic location and availability of resources.

  1. Provide an alternative public sphere for interactions and dialogue between Americans and Indonesians
  2. Facilitate Indonesian officials travelling to Washington with a ready venue to disseminate information for the Indonesian and American public
  3. Present Indonesian cultural performances, information, and education to American people as well as the Indonesian diaspora
  4. Serve as a hub regarding education and scholarship opportunities in Indonesia

In the first annum, the Indonesia Program at SIS will deliver the following programs:

  1. Seminar/ Policy Dialogue plan once every two months, aligned with the Fall and Spring academic calendar, on Indonesia-related topics
  2. Display and performance of Indonesian culture and arts
  3. Disseminating information about tourism and trade in Indonesia
  4. Screening Indonesian documentaries and films
