This year's theme is: Harnessing the Power of Technology: Navigating Truth and Trust in a World Transformed.

During the Institute, the Fellows work in multidisciplinary groups to address significant global challenges. After weeks of research, collaboration, and expert interviews, the Fellows make presentations to the Mary Jane Durnford '59 Distinguished Visiting Professor at the end of the program. This year's Distinguished Visiting Professor is Wendy R. Sherman, Senior Counselor at Albright Stonebridge Group and the former U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs (2011-2015).
