Michigan Ambassadors Forum

This November, the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan and the American Academy of Diplomacy will co-host a discussion panel of prestigious experts to enhance public understanding of critical foreign policy areas, focusing on U.S. diplomatic efforts in the Persian Gulf.

Ambassador Speaker Series

In 2018, the Academy began its collaboration with the Hotchkiss School in Lakeville, Connecticut through a program suggested by Hotchkiss alum and Academy member, Ambassador Robert M. Beecroft. Through this partnership, the Academy has since created the Ambassador Speaker Series, which aims to educate students about the importance of diplomacy.

"Support for American Jobs – Parts I & II"

"Support for American Jobs - Parts I & II" are two reports based on business views of U.S. commercial diplomacy programs, prepared by the American Academy of Diplomacy under the direction of the Una Chapman Cox Foundation.
