Uncertainty and Heartbreak
Following the U.S. withdrawal, alumni reflect on their work to transform Afghanistan
Maxwell alumni wonder whether the changes they worked for in Afghanistan will endure after the ‘heartbreaking’ U.S. withdrawal.
Maxwell alumnus Joseph Strasser was among the school’s most generous supporters, having donated more than $7 million to benefit its students, faculty and schoolwide priorities. Strasser devoted himself to causes close to his heart: education, homeless pets, parks and recreational programs. He died at age 89 following a lengthy illness.
Scholars across the School are analyzing data, conducting surveys, and examining policy initiatives, often in collaboration with colleagues in other disciplines, to better understand the true impact of the pandemic—and to inform more effective policy.
