Giving to the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA)

SIPA’s mission–to educate the next generation of leaders and problem-solvers and contribute our knowledge to advance human progress–has never been more relevant, nor your support more essential to our success.

Whether seeking to reduce poverty, improve economic growth, foster well-governed and more sustainable cities, or understand and reduce conflict, we work around the globe to bring fresh ideas and new approaches to policy analysis and implementation in the 21st century. Our community spans the globe but we share a common commitment: to drive progress on the critical challenges facing humanity.

What Can Be: The Campaign for SIPA builds upon our 70-plus-year history to imagine a new era of impact in the world, and to fund areas essential to SIPA’s future. Our fundraising priorities reflect our aspirations for SIPA – from ensuring the most qualified students, to expanding our innovative programs that reinforce the School’s position of leadership, to making an extraordinary faculty even stronger.

SIPA is one of the special places in the world that can bridge the gap between the academy and public policy and work for global solutions, informed by deep knowledge of the world and local conditions. We hope our work will inspire you to join us in this effort. There has never been a more important time.
