The United States Diplomacy Center’s education programs immerse students in the world of American diplomacy and the critical work of the United States Department of State. At the heart of the center’s education programs is Discover Diplomacy, a free diplomacy simulationsprogram that allows students and teachers to experience what it is like to be a diplomat while grappling with complex foreign affairs topics. The goal is for participants to work together, as opposing countries with competing interests, to negotiate common ground and propose solutions. The open-access online simulations are aimed at helping students develop decision-making, problem-solving, and negotiation skills, while providing insight into vital foreign affairs topics. In the eight diplomacy simulations, students negotiate global challenges ranging from migration to wildlife trafficking. The diplomacy simulations program includes printed materials and digital videoconferences. The United States Diplomacy Center also trains teachers to run the simulations in the classroom. A free teacher’s guide is available.
