Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Civic Education Initiative

Civic Education Initiative

Building on our twenty years of work with high school teachers, FPRI’s Center for the Study of America and the West has begun an ambitious program in Civic Education for students. This initiative includes both partnerships with local schools and the production of materials aimed at school audiences, to enrich young people’s understanding of the institutions and ideas that shape American political life.

Through the development of multimedia primers on important American and Western institutions, as well as a series of educational simulation programs on the founding and the cornerstones of American liberty, the Center is making a timely contribution to civic education and good citizenship not only in Philadelphia but nationally.


The Foreign Policy Research Institute, founded in 1955, is a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization devoted to bringing the insights of scholarship to bear on the development of policies that advance U.S. national interests. In the tradition of our founder, Ambassador Robert Strausz-Hupé, Philadelphia-based FPRI embraces history and geography to illuminate foreign policy challenges facing the United States. more about FPRI »
