In this month's video I take a moment to look back at all that we have accomplished at The Fletcher School in 2014. It was an exciting year in which we launched many innovative initiatives. These included, among others, the new Senior Statesman-in-Residence program which brought Nobel Laureate Mohamed ElBaradei and other international leaders to campus; a global Fletcher book club called "Fletcher Reads" featuring award-winning authors in the international affairs genre; the inaugural Fletcher Women's Leadership Award recognizing a mid-career alumna for her exceptional work in the global arena; new grants and sponsorships including a $1 million grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York for policy relevant research and impact; very successful executive and diplomatic education programs; and more. But what I am really excited about is the roll-out of the 5-year Strategic Plan for The Fletcher School. It was a remarkable year-long process putting the plan together - working groups, town hall meetings, and participation across the School and throughout our global alumni network. I look forward to sharing the final plan with you all in the new year. Here's wishing you and yours a peaceful and prosperous holiday season from everyone at The Fletcher School!
