Maxwell / The School

Centers & Institutes

Maxwell sponsors or co-sponsors 9 research centers and institutes. Each is organized around a theme or specialization within public affairs, and each serves two complementary missions. First, it augments teaching activities by sponsoring events and activities that capitalize on Maxwell’s interdisciplinary traditions. And it facilitates research projects that fall within its topical area, often linking students with faculty members in study, research, conferences, and publication.

In the centers and institutes, you are apt to find faculty members — and students — from different disciplines working together on challenges of public policy, governance, economic development, and other spheres of public life. The centers and institutes are laboratories for the sort of silo-busting work that is considered one of Maxwell strengths.

The 9 centers and research institutes are:
