History of the Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs

The Geonomics Institute for International Economic Advancement was founded in 1988. Its original purpose was to convene public and private leaders who understood the benefits of trade and commercial ties between Western businesses and developing countries and markets.

On July 1, 1996 the Geonomics Institute began an agreement with Middlebury College for a trial period of two years. Through this agreement Middlebury faculty would work closely with the Geonomics Institute and the Institute would receive technological and support services from the college. The Institute would change its name several times. It would become known as the Geonomics Center for International Affairs before becoming the Center for International Affairs at Middlebury College in 2001. In 2002 the Center was named in honor of Felix Rohatyn '49.
