School of Diplomacy and International Relations Logo


Diplomacy faculty regularly contribute internationally recognized research and scholarship to the global community. They are also decorated pioneers in teaching. Innovative teaching at the School of Diplomacy has earned our faculty the University's Teacher of the Year award for two consecutive years, and it comes in a variety of forms: from creative writing assignments and in-class projects to academic experiences fully conducted in the field. Innovative teaching methods engage students actively in their own learning while simultaneously illustrating the practical applications of their knowledge.
