On May 6, 2022 the IAS Bamberger Medal was presented to Shelby White, IAS Trustee Emerita and Founder of the Leon Levy Foundation, at a celebration on the Institute’s campus in Princeton, NJ. Shelby has championed the Institute throughout the four decades since her late husband Leon Levy’s appointment to the Board of Trustees in 1988.

NPR reports IAS Trustee Mario Draghi, "who is credited with saving the euro, … will be tasked with guiding the country through the twin crises of the coronavirus and a crumbling economy. Draghi, who formerly served as the head of the European Central Bank, took the oath of office with support from across the political spectrum with all but one of Italy's major parties backing him."
