Education for Public Inquiry and International Citizenship, 1986


Education for Public Inquiry and International Citizenship (EPIIC) is a multidisciplinary program administered by the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies in the College of Liberal Arts and Jackson College. Each year, EPIIC chooses a theme having to do with an international issue, and organizes around that theme a year-long colloquium for participating students culminating in a symposium held late in the academic year in which experts in the field are invited to come and speak. Stand-alone events are held throughout the year, such as speakers, screenings, and panel discussions.

EPIIC's first program was held in 1986, on international terrorism. Since then, topics have included Drugs, International Security, and US Public Policy; Transformations in the Global Economy; Religion, Ethnicity, and Nationalism; and Global Games: Sports, Politics and Society.

In addition to the undergraduate component of EPIIC, each year EPIIC sponsors a program, called Inquiry, for high school students. Inquiry was established in 1991.Inquiry takes as its focus the same theme as EPIIC and gives its participants the opportunity to learn through investigative methods and role-playing. Inquiry is a year-long program in which teachers work with EPIIC to develop curricular materials and integrate teaching on that year's theme into their classrooms. After learning about the topic in the classroom, participating students come together at Tufts to hold a simulation in which students role-play to address the issues involved. Curricular materials developed through Inquiry have been used by high schools around the US.
