Graduate School's International Institute
The Graduate School is an independent, educational, not-for-profit institution headquartered in the nation’s capital with additional sites strategically located throughout the U.S. The Graduate School was founded in 1921 and is celebrating its 90th anniversary. The School engages a diverse student population through innovative, as well as proven, approaches to teaching and learning that take advantage of its locations, its network of public and corporate leaders and practitioners, state-of-the-art technologies and connections with major employers. The School provides a broad array of learning opportunities in formats accessible to adult learners everywhere through affordable training programs, continuing education courses, executive and leadership development programs, and credit offerings at the certificate and associate degree levels. The global arm of the Graduate School was formalized in 1961 with the creation of the International Institute. The International Institute develops and administers programs in the areas of capacity building, professional development and exchange programs, health, and governance.
