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.

Throughout the year, the Academy works with high schools and universities around the country in an effort to educate students about the diplomacy and the work of U.S. Ambassadors overseas.
