The Madeleine K. Albright Institute for Global Affairs will start up at Wellesley College in January, inspired by the former secretary of state’s offer to donate her papers to the school, according to the Boston Globe.

“The Albright Institute will be a place where scholars and practitioners can gather to research, to reflect on, and discuss and debate global issues,” Wellesley College President H. Kim Bottomly said in a statement. “It will be a place that brings a focused international perspective to our liberal arts curriculum. It will be a place that will play a critical role in Wellesley’s education of future women leaders across the world.”

Albright, a 1959 graduate of the school, will be a visiting professor at the new institute.
