Programs include the Academic Conference Call Series; live streaming of CFR meetings; workshops for college and university presidents and deans, professors, and high school teachers; briefings for students; exhibitions and events at conferences across the country; and disseminating CFR print and multimedia resources for teaching and learning about global issues.
