Building U.S.-Indonesia Mutual Understanding Since 1994

“Having hosted the Summer Studies Program for over a decade, USINDO was very familiar with interacting with American exchange students. This provided me with a unique understanding of Indonesian interpretations of American life and people, as we had many conversations about how there can be significant environmental and personality differences between Americans based on their background and hometown. It was through these conversations that I felt both my host parents and I grew our knowledge a lot about the similarities and differences in values between the U.S. and Indonesia.”
