The Carmel Institute of Russian Culture and History at American University promotes greater understanding of Russian culture's versatility and richness among all Consortium students in the Washington area. It builds lasting connections between Russians and Americans by reaching out to their hearts and minds. 

The Carmel Institute offers screenings of classic Soviet and Russian films with discussions led by visiting experts. Academic conferences, student exchanges, musical and theater performances, art exhibits, and other events are held at American University, the Embassy of the Russian Federation, and other locations around the Washington Metropolitan area. The Carmel Institute supports Russian language study and new courses on Russian literature, film, culture and history at American University to promote new perspectives on Russia among Americans, both young and old. We know that many small steps can add up to a positive and permanent footprint for the future.
