The Carey Institute for Global Good is dedicated to making a better world by contributing to a strong, educated and just society.  The roots of the Carey Institute estate date back to 1924 when students from around the world gathered to promote global understanding that could lead to peaceful resolutions of differences following World War I. When the Institute was founded in 2011 with a generous seed gift from the friends and family of Wm. Polk Carey, as well as the W.P. Carey Foundation, our goal was to support Bill’s vision of re-establishing this original spirit of dynamic inquiry to create meaningful change in the world. 

Today, the Institute is tackling some of the most challenging issues of our times through programs that strengthen democracy, improve professional learning and knowledge sharing in the education sector and contribute to a more sustainable future for rural economies.
