History

The MacMillan Center was created in the 1960s as the Concilium on International and Area Studies and later renamed in the 1980s as the Yale Center for International and Area Studies (YCIAS). In April 2006, YCIAS was renamed as The Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale.[1] The center is currently headed by political science professor Ian Shapiro.

Jackson Institute for Global Affairs

In April 2009, Yale announced it had received a $50 million gift to create the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs as a part of the MacMillan Center.[2] The Institute opened its door in the 2010 fall semester and is now home to Yale's "Master’s Program in International Relations" and the undergraduate majors in "International Studies" and "Global Affairs."[3] Notable "Senior Fellows" involved in the program include retired four-star general Stanley McChrystal, former head of the CIA James Woolsey and Judge Richard Goldstone among others.[4][5]
