Help us hit the ground running in 2019-20!! The IGL’s reach is growing, based on student demand and the impact they hope to achieve in the world.

Gifts will support all IGL programming, from EPIIC to ALLIES to NIMEP, as well as new initiatives: the Latin American Committee, Women in International Relations, European Horizons International and the new Tufts International Development initiative in Costa Rica. We are also offering two new classes: Negotiation Skills and Microfinance.

Students are eager to engage intellectually and experientially with issues, seeking out the IGL. The students have many, many ideas that they are eager to pursue – from research and internships to group fact-finding trips to on-campus programming.

These initiatives are possible only with the support from our dedicated community and network of donors.
