The Fletcher School's Global Issues Seminar Series

About the Program

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.
