IGL Programs at Tisch College Dec 05

In the summer of 2022, Tufts University made the decision to close the Institute for Global Leadership (IGL) as a Provost-based institute and to transition its programs to the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life.

For more than three decades, IGL’s offerings have connected theory to practice, engaged students in the complexity of global issues, and developed new generations of effective and ethical leaders. This work is aligned to the mission and vision of Tisch College, which has grown into a vibrant platform for local and global partnerships, student programs, courses and service opportunities, and groundbreaking research focused on robust, inclusive democracy.
