Jackson School of Global Affairs

Giving with a Global Reach

Leadership on a global stage requires character, intellect, and a commitment to dialogue. Donors to the Jackson School of 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. Formerly the Jackson Institute, the Jackson School is 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

The Jackson School embraces the research mission of the university. A world-class faculty, with many positions held jointly with other professional schools at Yale, drive a robust research program that sets the intellectual agenda for how to address global affairs. This research is academically grounded but also bears 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.
