Dear Educator:

Welcome back from what I trust was an enjoyable summer. As you prepare your syllabus for the fall semester, I invite you and your students to participate in our Academic Conference Call series. The schedule follows below; please note that calls this semester will alternate between Wednesdays and Thursdays in order to better accommodate the schedules of different schools.

Another resource we encourage you to take advantage of is
Foreign Affairs, which we are offering at a discounted bulk subscription rate for educators and students at http://www.foreignaffairs.com/node/64126

We hope you and your students are able to participate in the conference calls, as well as take advantage of the wide range of resources CFR has to offer. For more information on CFR's Academic Initiative, please visit www.cfr.org/educators or email educators@cfr.org.

Best regards,

Irina A. Faskianos
