Launch of Yale Jackson School of Global Affairs announced

The Yale Board of Trustees has approved the transformation of the university’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs into a school, President Peter Salovey announced April 6. 

The new school will apply evidence-based scholarship to challenges of maximum global importance, such as climate change, war and peace, ethnic conflict, inequality, and migration.

The Yale Jackson School of Global Affairs will be the first professional school created at Yale since the establishment of the Yale School of Management, which opened in 1976.
