The Atlantic Institute

The Atlantic Institute is an independent, non-profit organization whose goal is to facilitate dialogue and bridge cultures from both sides of the Atlantic.  In order to reach a more understanding and accepting coexistence of cultures, it is necessary to embrace diversity and build tolerance and awareness for differing beliefs, traditions, and opinions.  Through academic and educational programs dedicated to building cross-cultural and interfaith dialogue, the Atlantic Institute will help develop and maintain a more inclusive society in greater Southeast.

As an academic and educational organization, we seek to provide opportunities for growth and expansion of understanding through several educational programs.  Our educational programs include leadership forums for university students, distinguished speaker series, sponsored international trips as a way to foster direct cross-cultural communication, as well as our annual Art & Essay Contest which features works of art and composition from Middle School and High School students across the Southeastern United States.

As a basis for its mission, the Atlantic Institute is influenced by the teachings and wisdom of many scholars and figures such as the poet Rumi, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Fethullah Gulen, who emphasizes the importance of dialogue and understanding in an effort to create a world in which tolerance and acceptance of differing cultures is the norm.
