Dear Educator:

Happy holidays! As you prepare your syllabus for next semester, I hope you will draw upon the wealth of CFR and Foreign Affairs resources available to the academic community. Our popular Academic Conference Call series will resume in February 2011; the complete schedule follows below.

Additionally, if you include CFR resources in your classroom, please let us know as we would like to feature you and your college or university in our new “CFR in the Classroom” section of the 2011 CFR Educators Bulletin. To be considered, email educators@cfr.org with details on how you use CFR and Foreign Affairs materials.

Look forward to your participation in the New Year!

Best regards,

Irina A. Faskianos
Vice President, National Program & Outreach
Council on Foreign Relations
