Thank you from Interim Dean Ian Johnstone
Thanks to your generous support, The Fletcher School is preparing leaders to tackle our global challenges now and in the future. I am pleased to share this report about our recent achievements to give you a taste of the tremendous impact you have on the school and, through it, the world.
This is an exciting time to be at The Fletcher School. The skills and expertise of our faculty and graduates are in demand as leaders around the globe grapple with a changing environment, displaced populations, shifts in our economy, and the rise of populism.
In 1933, The Fletcher School began as an innovation: the first graduate school in the United States dedicated solely to international relations. We continue to innovate to this day, offering a broad professional education for students committed to maintaining the stability and prosperity of a complex, challenging, and increasingly global society.
As we look ahead, we are positioning ourselves for ongoing success by focusing on increasing aid to support our hard-working students and enhancing our interdisciplinary curriculum to educate them for the future.
I am humbled to have stewarded this exceptional school for the past year as interim dean, and I hope you will join me in welcoming Dean Rachel Kyte, F02. A Fletcher alumna herself, our new dean understands that there is no mission more noble than educating young people who will build a better world.
Thank you for ensuring that The Fletcher School will continue this essential work.
Dean ad interim July 2018–September 2019
Professor of International Law
