Maxwell / The School


D.C. Presence

The Maxwell School has entered into a new, far-reaching collaboration with a major Washington, D.C., think tank, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). The collaboration creates new and enhanced opportunities for education, research, and career development — while also strengthening Maxwell's presence in the nation's capital.

All Maxwell School classes in Washington now take place in CSIS's new headquarters at 1616 Rhode Island Avenue NW, a world-class facility with two-story conference space, multiple teaching areas, and state-of-the-art electronics and audiovisual facilities. CSIS also houses the Maxwell-in-Washington staff and visiting faculty from the School's Syracuse campus, and provides enhanced opportunities for Maxwell to conduct symposia, workshops, meetings, and expanded executive education programs in D.C.

And Maxwell students now have many enriched opportunities to participate in CSIS activities and internships and to interact with the Washington policy community. Maxwell faculty members from across the School's varied disciplines will explore research collaborations with CSIS staff and affiliates, while pursuing options for joint programming, teaching, and writing.

The bipartisan, nonprofit CSIS is one of the world's preeminent international policy institutions that, for more than 50 years, has focused on issues related to defense and security, regional stability, and transnational challenges ranging from energy and climate to global development and economic integration.
