Congress to Campus International

Given its history of success, the growing need to encourage an international understanding of the United States and its government, and the global nature of most of the issues warranting civil debate, the Congress to Campus program is currently pursuing an international program in addition to its domestic program.

Over the past six years, the Congress to Campus program has partnered with the Eccles Center at the British Library to develop a program in the United Kingdom reaching, over the course of one week, almost 500 students from across the UK and Europe.

Due to the success and the strength of the partnership with the Eccles Center, the British Library added a second visit during the calendar year. In addition to the traditional November visit, a bipartisan former Members team visited Oxford University, Northampton University, Winchester University, and Wellington College during the spring.

In addition to the United Kingdom, the program also completed visits to four Canadian Universities in the fall of 2008. With the help of the United States Embassy in Ottawa and its Consular offices, the program was able to reach students in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and Victoria, British Columbia.
