The Deitz Family Initiative on Environment and Global Affairs

About the Initiative

The initiative supports students who want to work at the intersection of environmental change and security, humanitarian aid, finance, technology governance, and other aspects of global affairs.


The initiative is led by Jackson Senior Fellow Jessica Seddon, in collaboration with partners across the university.


The initiative features an innovative year-long curriculum that gives students the knowledge and analytical tools to think systematically about upgrading and redesigning institutions.
