The mission of the Russian Flagship

The mission of the Russian Flagship at Indiana University is simple: We aim to shape undergraduate students into outstanding global professionals with superior language proficiency and expert cultural fluency. The faculty, staff, and tutors in the Russian Flagship program at IU are committed to implementing the state-of-the-art methods, tools, and assessments outlined by the National Security Education Program (NSEP) to ensure that students succeed in obtaining their Flagship Certification upon graduation. We help Russian Flagship students gain the skills, the experience, and the confidence to become the next generation of leaders who will boldly lead the way—like a flagship—in forging new intellectual pathways and building bridges between international communities.
