Outreach

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is committed to reaching out to different constituencies so that they better understand the world and the foreign policy choices facing the United States and other governments. CFR is devoting more time and energy to connecting with and serving as a resource for groups of interested citizens whose voices are increasingly important to the national foreign policy debate. These constituencies include educators and students; religious and congregational leaders; and state and local officials.

Educators

CFR's Academic Initiative seeks to serve as a valuable resource for the academic community by connecting educators and students with CFR's research and analysis. CFR programming includes a bimonthly interactive Academic Conference Call series for students, access to webcasts of CFR meetings, student briefings with a CFR fellow at CFR's New York headquarters and Washington, DC, office, online Teaching Modules built around CFR publications, and other resources.

Religious and Congregational Leaders

CFR's Religion and Foreign Policy Initiative engages religious and congregational leaders, scholars, and thinkers from across the country in cross-denominational conversations on global issues, and seeks to serve as a resource of information and analysis on pressing foreign policy topics of interest to the religious community. CFR programming includes a monthly Religion and Foreign Policy Conference Call series featuring CFR fellows and scholars, access to live teleconferences and webcasts of CFR meetings, and briefings by CFR experts.
