The Global Issues Seminars (GIS) are an outreach program of The Fletcher School. The seminars are held two to three times a year. Lectures by Fletcher professors and more pedagogically-oriented sessions by local high school teachers provide an intellectually stimulating day for some 50-60 Boston area high school history teachers.
