Jackson Institute for Global Affairs

Giving with a Global Reach

Leadership on a global stage requires character, intellect, and a commitment to dialogue. Donors to the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs support the education of such leaders, within a community of outstanding faculty members, distinguished practitioners, and other talented students from around the world. Now, the Jackson Institute is poised to become the Jackson School, expanding its mission of teaching, research, and community building. With your support, this new, stronger Jackson will emerge to help us confront the day’s most daunting challenges with wisdom, facts, collaboration, and courage.

New Research Excellence

As it transitions to a school, Jackson will also embrace the research mission of the university. A world-class faculty, with many positions held jointly with other professional schools at Yale, will drive a robust research program that sets the intellectual agenda for how to address global affairs. This research will be academically grounded but also bear on real-world problems, providing the intellectual underpinnings for evidence-based policy making. The ultimate goal of this work is to solve key global problems—international relations, war, trade, economic development, ethnic conflict, migration, health, and climate—shaping a better future for all of humanity.
