The primary aim of The Fletcher School is the same as it was when conceived by its founders in 1933. Fletcher offers a broad program of professional education in international relations to a select group of graduate students committed to maintaining the stability and prosperity of a complex, challenging, and increasingly global society.
Our mission remains:
To educate professionals from around the world and to prepare them for positions of leadership and influence in the national and international arenas;
To increase understanding of international problems and concerns through teaching, research, and publications;
To serve local, national, and international communities in their search to develop relationships of mutual benefit, security, and justice in an increasingly interdependent world.

The “news” of the change in Fletcher’s foreign language requirement is maybe not really news to a lot of readers by now. The official announcement of the change in policy was made a week or so ago, and we’ve been in touch individually with a lot of incoming and current students since that time. For those to whom this is indeed still news, the core information is that Fletcher students will now have the option to demonstrate second language proficiency as an additional credential, rather than being required to do so in order to graduate.
The World Peace Foundation, one of Fletcher’s most active research centers, announces “African Voices, African Arguments,” a new podcast series featuring African public intellectuals, scholars, activists, and diplomats on crucial issues of the day.
