Connect with Us Remotely
The Maxwell School stands in support of all who are demanding change in the face of racism, violence and hate speech. We are committed to making our school, our university and our communities more inclusive and just for all. There is absolutely no place
for behavior or language that degrades any individual or group’s race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, disability or religious beliefs.
The Maxwell School is in the process of drafting a three-year strategic plan that will not only make plain our vision for cultivating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive academic environment, but also articulate goals, strategies, tactics and measurable
outcomes for the betterment of all.
Key to this strategic plan is the notion that any action we take has to be sustained through accountability, institutionalization and a change in culture. To do so, the development and implementation of this plan will happen in collaboration with the
broader Maxwell community–through meetings, events, initiatives and information dissemination to faculty, staff and students. Information about these events will be made available on this website and through associated outreach communications.
In addition, we will soon post a working draft of the DEI Strategic Plan on this website and invite community feedback on its contents as well as its implementation. Please email your feedback to MaxwellDEI@syr.edu.
Here we share with you the preamble in development.
The following includes stories about recent investments at Maxwell—including new hires, appointments, awards and funded initiatives—aimed at fostering a more diverse, equitable and inclusive environment. To read great stories about the accomplishments
of Maxwell faculty and students, including our URM community members, please visit the School’s main News & Events feed.
