This paper describes the 1988 Summer Session of the International Space University (ISU) and the International Lunar Initiative (ILI) Design Project, taking place for nine weeks in the summer of 1988 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). One hundred graduate students from over a dozen countries will hear lectures from a core of 12 ISU faculty directors, 16 ISU faculty advisors, and scores of visiting lecturers. In addition to ISU courses, the students will work with faculty to define, examine feasibility, and conduct a multi-disciplinary set of design activities to establish a permanent, international habitat for a range of human activities on the Moon. The students' research and design activities will culminate in an ILI Design Project Final Report at the end of the 1988 Summer Session.
