EDI is dedicated to furthering international understanding through the offering of the highest quality educational services and professional-experience programs. EDI aims to bring America and the world together through professional, educational and cultural exchange.


Learning Through Experience

Since 1990, our programs have emphasized direct interactions between the people and institutions of the United States and international individuals and organizations. Our international participants gain deeper understanding of America while all parties develop meaningful international relationships.

Language as Key

EDI believes that language is the key to understanding: it is both a communication tool and an insight into one's culture. Our staff are all bilingual, representing several linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Our international make-up allows us to understand our international clients better and to offer programs that reflect and blend both American and international perspectives.
