Historian Beverly Gage to head Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy

February 23, 2017

History professor Beverly Gage has been appointed the next director of Yale’s Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy (GS), announced President Peter Salovey on Feb. 22. Gage will assume her new post on July 1.

The president noted that he also will recommend Gage’s appointment as the Brady-Johnson Professor of Grand Strategy when the Yale Corporation meets later this spring. The chair was established in 2016 through the generosity of Nicholas F. Brady ’52 and Charles B. Johnson ’54, whose gift also helped expand the program in 2006.

“I am grateful to Professor Gage for her willingness to assume the directorship of this important program,” noted Salovey. “I know that she will provide energetic and dynamic leadership for Grand Strategy, and that she will develop excellent relationships with GS students, faculty, and alumni.”

The Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy seeks to promote effective leadership in a complex and fast-changing world. It encourages understanding of historical and contemporary global challenges, and develops students’ capacity for strategic thinking and common-sense problem solving.
