The mission of the Institute of Global Leadership at Tufts University is to prepare new generations of critical thinkers for effective and ethical leadership, ready to act as global citizens in addressing international and national issues across cultures. In 2005, the IGL was named a distinctive, cross-school program of the University. The Institute emphasizes rigorous academic preparation and experiential learning. Students learn through intensive engagement in classes, global research, internships, workshops, simulations and international symposia – all involving national and international leaders from the public and private sectors. Among its more than 16 programs are EPIIC, Inquiry, the China Cross-Cultural Leadership Program, and EXPOSURE, and it offers many opportunities for global research and internships. IGL activities stress critical and normative thinking, written and oral communication skills, problem-solving, and multidisciplinary approaches. There is an emphasis both on individual progress and on collaborative effort and students produce tangible outcomes to their studies through their research papers, the international forums, and other projects. The Institute promotes the linkage of theory to practice and exposes students to the rigors and challenges of a diverse world.

Through Macy’s Heart of Haiti program, purchasing one of these handcrafted masterpieces directly benefits Haitian artisans by allowing them to support their families with dignity and purpose. Artisans receive half the wholesale price for each item in this collection. This initiative offers the first sustainable work since the earthquake, enabling artisans to repair homes, pay school fees and feed and clothe their families. With steady income comes better nutrition, improved education and access to healthcare. Heart of Haiti also offers new opportunities for artists to collaborate with US designers, strengthening artisan associations and inspiring and energizing their communities. Men and women are working together, gaining confidence and hope for the future. Master artisans who planned to leave the country are now staying behind to train the next generation. The tradition of rich and uniquely Haitian art lives on, through the generosity of many like you.
Founded by actor and humanitarian Sean Penn, J/P HRO began its work just hours after the earthquake hit. Through his previous relief efforts — including experience rescuing hurricane victims and helping to rebuild New Orleans after hurricane Katrina — he had amassed a large network of emergency management and government contacts, whom he mobilized to take immediate action in Haiti. From J/P HROʼs very first days on the ground it was recognized as an agile and effective organization that spent its resources effectively. A year later, J/P HROʼs influence and achievements have increased significantly, precisely because the organization has maintained an agility and effective implementation of resources that maximizes impact and results for the Haitian people. J/P HROʼs goal is to help lift the nation of Haiti out of the rubble and give the Haitian people a better life. Our organization is dedicated to empowering Haitians to return to their previous lives, and to realize a more promising future. We envision a Haiti where a stable and sustainable standard of living can be achieved without dependence on outside organizations. J/P HRO employs nearly 300 staff, more than 90% of which are local Haitians. As the next phase of work in Haiti unfolds, we strive to continue to be leaders—finding new and more efficient ways of bringing relief and empowerment to the people of Haiti.
Roots of Development helps impoverished communities in Haiti acquire the financial resources and organizational skills they need to manage their own development. We promote an alternative approach to rural development by facilitating a process in which we bring together diverse representatives from a community, listen to their goals, and build on their inherent strengths to complete community-driven projects that foster greater independence. We currently work with impoverished communities in Haiti, but are committed to reaching out elsewhere in the world to replicate this community-led approach to development. By doing so, we hope to create a cluster of community groups (“associations”) around the world that, through their own efforts, have achieved greater economic independence. The members of these associations will become agents of change and have a direct role in helping other impoverished communities achieve the same independence by facilitating the process elsewhere.
