The Elliott School prepares nearly 3,000 students each year for meaningful careers in international affairs.

We develop the next generation of international leaders: leaders with knowledge, character and skills.

Our faculty conducts research, produces scholarship and contributes to the public debate on global issues to advance understanding and to help foster solutions.

We are located just steps from some of the most influential U.S, international and nongovernmental organizations in the world. Our singular position in the heart of the District of Columbia enriches our teaching and research by giving our students and faculty unparalleled opportunities to engage with the international leaders who walk through our doors on a regular basis.
