History

Founded in 1983 as the "Institute for International Studies", IIS added Stanford to the beginning of its name in 2003, and is abbreviated as "Stanford IIS". On September 1, 2005 "Stanford IIS" was renamed the "Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies" due to $50 million donation to the Institute from Brad Freeman and Ron Spogli, and is now abbreviated as FSI. IIS was founded by former Stanford President Richard Wall Lyman, who became its first director.

In addition to its five centers, the Institute sponsors various programs such as the Program on Energy & Sustainable Development, European Forum, Initiative on Distance Learning, and the Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education.

The current director of FSI is Coit D. Blacker, who served as Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and Senior Director for Russian, Ukrainian and Eurasian Affairs at the National Security Council under National Security Advisor Anthony Lake.

The deputy director's post was vacated in February 2005, when Stephen D. Krasner left to become Director of Policy Planning at the State Department under Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former Secretary of Defense William Perry are among the faculty members of FSI.
