This month, I’d like to introduce you to CFR Academic Modules, a special Council on Foreign Relations resource created exclusively for educators. Academic Modules are customized packages built around a CFR publication and feature teaching notes by the author of the text. The modules also include supplementary readings, Foreign Affairs articles, and multimedia resources, compiled to assist educators in integrating CFR publications into their syllabi. Below you will find three of our newest Academic Modules; to explore the complete list, please visit: http://www.cfr.org/educators/modules.html.

Vice President, National Program & Outreach
This module features teaching notes by CFR fellow Charles D. Ferguson, the author of Nuclear Energy, along with other resources to supplement the text. In the report, Ferguson examines the benefits and limits of nuclear power, arguing that the United States and international partners must find effective ways to address risks if the use of nuclear energy is to be realistically expanded.
This module features teaching notes by CFR Hitachi international affairs fellow Frank Sampson Jannuzi, the director of the Council-sponsored Independent Task Force on U.S.-China Relations, along with other resources to supplement the text. The report takes stock of the changes under way in China and what they mean for U.S.-China relations.
This module features teaching notes by former CFR senior fellow Lee Feinstein, the author of Darfur and Beyond, along with other resources to supplement the text. In the report, Feinstein argues that the new UN secretary-general should take the General Assembly's endorsement of responsibility to protect as a mandate and outlines steps the United States and others must follow to bolster UN action.
This biweekly conference call series features a short presentation by a CFR fellow, expert, or Foreign Affairs author, followed by a question-and-answer session for students. In order to encourage an interactive dialogue, we ask that professors convene students in a group to participate. For more information or to RSVP, please email email@example.com.
