Institutions of Higher Learning

The Office of Cultural Heritage engages undergraduate and graduate students through affiliations with art and architecture programs in the United States and overseas. The students learn about U.S. diplomatic missions and explore the social and political history of the host nation through the built environment and a close examination of a heritage property. Their research and design studios produce architectural documentation and interpretive materials that promote cultural understanding.
