History



The Fletcher School was founded in 1933 with the bequest of Austin Barclay Fletcher, who left over $3 million to Tufts University

 upon his death in 1923. A third of these funds were dedicated to a school of law and diplomacy. Fletcher did not have in mind a school "of the usual kind, which prepares men for admission to the bar and for the active practice of law." Instead, Fletcher envisioned "a school to prepare men for the diplomatic service and to teach such matters as come within the scope of foreign relations [which] embraces within it as a fundamental and thorough knowledge of the principles of international law upon which diplomacy is founded, although the profession of a diplomat carries with it also a knowledge of many things of a geographic and economic nature which affect relations between nations."

The school opened in 1933 as a collaborative project between Harvard University

In addition to the various joint programs offered, Fletcher students can also take classes at MIT and Harvard graduate schools. In addition, Harvard and MIT cross register at Fletcher as well.

, with the approval of the Trustees of Tufts College (the university's governing board). The dean has responsibility for the overall administration of the school, including faculty appointments, curriculum, admissions and financial aid, student affairs, development, and facilities. Unlike other graduate schools of international relations at other universities, the Fletcher School has a separate faculty, its own budget, and its own set of faculty bylaws. There are, however, a few professors who hold joint appointments with departments in the School of Arts and Sciences. Furthermore, Fletcher professors occasionally offer courses in the College of Liberal Arts or allow undergraduates to enroll in the graduate classes. The undergraduate international relations program, the largest major in the College of Liberal Arts, has its offices in the Cabot Intercultural Center, the main building of the Fletcher School complex. However, Tufts undergraduate department of international affairs is completely independent and has no affiliation with The Fletcher School.

The full-time Fletcher faculty comprise economists, international lawyers, historians, and political scientists who hold the academic ranks of professor
