Let’s work together to better prepare our students as engaged citizens and forward thinkers. Your contributions play a vital role in creating scholarships, internships, study abroad opportunities, and research advancements. Read a message from Dean Adil Najam.

The Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies is BU’s youngest school, and was created after Frederick S. Pardee (Questrom’54,’54, Hon.’06) generously donated $25 million in 2014. He envisioned a school that would take on the challenge of advancing global human progress, one that would provide an all-encompassing, meaningful education on the human condition. Dean Adil Najam perpetuates this vision with the belief that all students deserve to educate themselves and contribute to their communities. In turn, they will leave a lasting legacy of generosity, acceptance, and commitment to a unified society.

With more than 800 undergraduates and 100 graduate students, Pardee weaves together social and natural sciences and the humanities under the divisions of regional and international relations. Our graduates—guided by a local compass and worldwide intuition—become leaders in global health, diplomacy, religion, and international security.
