The USAD Board of Directors has approved the expansion of USAD programs into the international arena with immediate effect on September 11, 2014* at their quarterly meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah. International Academy for Social Development (IASD), LLC has been exclusively chosen to spearhead this expansion for a period of five years. Dr. K. Habib Khan is the President and CEO of IASD.
This approval has opened doors for international teams to participate in in-country competitions in their own country. The champions of this competition will be invited at the discretion of the USAD Board of Directors to participate in the USAD National Competition to be held during April 28-30, 2016 in Anchorage, Alaska. The participation of the international team is limited to a maximum of 20 teams. One team per school will be invited to attend.
We are expecting to welcome teams from China, UK, Portugal and Malaysia to attend in 2016. USAD International welcomes all High Schools where medium of instruction is English, or have sufficient command of English language to participate in the in-country competition to be held in each country. Each high school enters a team of nine students:

The international in-country competition will run exactly along the same lines as the United States competitions based upon USAD curriculum and standards. Vigorous and rigorous requirements will be enforced so that the integrity of the USAD program stays intact. The most qualified US staff will monitor and administer the testing, scoring and compiling results and finally declaring the champions. This list of champions will be forwarded to the USAD Board of Directors who will invite the teams to attend the National Competition in Alaska.
All international schools interested in purchasing an On-Site License for accessing the Curriculum and additional supplementary instructional materials must purchase from the USAD International Store, through the IASD website at www.iasocdev.com.
