HA MILTO N LU GA R. The Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies at Indiana University is a leader in the study of international affairs and the languages, cultures, and perspectives shaping our world. We are named for US Representative Lee H. Hamilton and the late US Senator Richard G. Lugarâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;two revered Hoosier statesmen and foreign policy voices who knew the importance of global engagement and the value of celebrating differences and seeking shared understanding. We build on a long tradition of excellence at Indiana University in educating principled and nonpartisan leaders at a time when the world needs them more than ever.

We celebrate differences & seek shared understanding. Ask any Hamilton Lugar School student, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you: at HLS, the only thing more contagious than passion is community. You feel it the moment you step on campus. You know it the moment you walk through our doors. From the first day of classes, you are immersed in a diverse, welcoming community at the hub of Indiana Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intellectual and cultural life. You will go from lecture halls to concert halls to attending our conference on Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Role in the World. You will study with diplomats, attend lectures by prime ministers, and debate climate accords with classmates (in one of more than 80 languages, no less). And when the time comes for you to walk across the stage and turn the tassel, you will be a global citizen ready to take on the world.
I was a direct admit to another IU school but felt lost among everyone who seemed to know exactly what they wanted to do after graduation. Then I discovered courses in the Hamilton Lugar School and the Chinese Flagship Program. I finished my senior year in Shanghai and Nanjing. Living there taught me so much about respecting other cultures, empathy, and getting out of my comfort zone.

WE L E A R N . We know the importance of getting outside of the academic bubble, and there are no shortage of ways for you to do it.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Attending the Hamilton Lugar School was a no-brainer for me. I explored similar programs at universities with prestigious international studies programs, but they lacked what I felt HLS had: an experience to make my own. From my first step into the Global and International Studies Building as a prospective student, I knew that at HLS, my journey would be mine to write.â&#x20AC;?

“The world has always been of interest to me. Whether that was excelling in my Spanish classes and diving into Latin American cultures, learning about the colonial French roots of my parents’ home country of Guinea, or researching my religion and how the Arabian Peninsula influenced it.” Ramatou gave the student introduction for Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s foreign policy speech at the IU Auditorium in June 2019.
