About Us

The Department's mission is to shape and sustain a peaceful, prosperous, just, and democratic world and foster conditions for stability and progress for the benefit of the American people and people everywhere. This mission is shared with the USAID, ensuring we have a common path forward in partnership as we invest in the shared security and prosperity that will ultimately better prepare us for the challenges of tomorrow.

The Foreign Service Institute (FSI) develops the men and women our nation requires to fulfill our leadership role in world affairs and to advance and defend U.S. interests. Created in 1947, FSI is the primary training institution for the U.S. foreign affairs community.
