Maxwell has partnered with the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications to launch the Syracuse University Democracy, Journalism and Citizenship Institute in Washington, D.C., with veteran journalist Margaret Talev as its founding director.
Maxwell’s partnership with the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C., provides unique opportunities for Maxwell students, including instruction from fellows, top practitioners and, recently, U.S. Army General Mark Milley.
Maxwell alumni journalists share how the new Democracy, Journalism and Citizenship Institute will reinforce the importance of a free press, promote media literacy and promote dialogue and understanding.
