The Diplomacy Lab is a U.S. Department of State program that allows university faculty and students contribute to the policy-making process while also helping the Department of State access an underutilized reservoir of intellectual capital. Students participating in the Diplomacy Lab program work under the guidance of faculty experts to explore real-world challenges and develop innovative responses to those challenges.
The University of Oklahoma is a partner university in the Diplomacy Lab program. Working directly with the Department of State’s Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships, OU serves as a leading institution among the Diplomacy Lab university participants.
