Sherman Teichman
Fellow Mentor, Albright Institute

Sherman Teichman
Sherman Teichman is the Founding Director (Emeritus since 2016) of the Institute for Global Leadership (IGL) at Tufts University.

Teichman is currently an expert at large, serving concurrently in multiple policy fellowships and as an advisor and board members to a number of nonprofit organizations. His academic and policy interests span a wide range of global issues, with a particular focus on international security.

Teichman founded the IGL in 1985 in the wake of the hijacking of TWA flight 847 to give students a nuanced understanding of international terrorism. The program grew incrementally, until it became in 1991 the Education for Public Inquiry and International Citizenship (EPIIC) program -- a year-long course with a strong independent research focus, organized each year around a different international political theme.

Teichman is the founder of the consultancy firm Trebuchet. Teichman is currently serving as a Senior Fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the Kennedy School, Harvard University and a Non-Resident Research Associate at the Centre for International Studies at University of Oxford, and holds affiliations with a number of other international research centers. He also serves in an advisory capacity at multiple non-profit organizations focused on international human rights and peace.

Teichman will serve as a Fellow Mentor for the 2019 class of Albright Fellows at the Albright Institute at Wellesley College.
