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.
Teaching that Inspires
The Jackson School was founded with a mission to prepare students for global leadership and service. Over the years, it has emerged as a highly visible forum where students, renowned scholars, and expert practitioners can engage in enlightened discourse related to global affairs. The institute offers classes at both undergraduate and graduate levels, inspiring students to pursue careers in diplomacy and public service, as well as to become well-informed leaders in business and nonprofit organizations. Funding for graduate fellowships and teaching excellence can expand access to these opportunities.
