The start of a new academic year is an extremely exciting time at The Fletcher School. Our first-year students are just arriving at Tufts—some for the very first time—infusing the campus with fresh perspectives, voices and energy. Our faculty and staff are returning from a variety of research projects and educational initiatives—including the GMAP program’s midyear residency in Berlin. Meanwhile, our second-year students are just back from myriad exciting internships around the world.
So, during the summer months, just where in the heck is Fletcher? From the ordinary like Ouagadougou, Burkina, to the more exotic like Boulder, Colorado, and more than 50 countries in between, Fletcher students participate in internships that cross functions, industries, sectors and geographies. This video created by students last spring might give you a better sense of the Fletcher diaspora.
Welcome back, Fletcher!
