Hurricane Katrina: The Storm that Drowned a City: 4:00 pm “In less than 12 hours Hurricane Katrina devastated the Louisiana coast, leading to more than a thousand deaths and transforming a city of over one million into an uninhabitable swamp...What made this storm so deadly? Will powerful hurricanes like Katrina strike more often? How accurately did scientists predict its impact, and why did the levees protecting New Orleans fail?” -Nova Tsunami: The Wave that Shook the World: 5:30 pm “On December 26, 2004, at 7:59 a.m. local time, an undersea section of the Earth's crust slipped along a 700-mile-long fault off the coast of Sumatra, setting in motion a train of destructive waves called tsunamis that left well over 250,000 people dead or missing. In "Wave That Shook the World," NOVA traces exactly what happened, and why.” -Nova Haiti’s Killer Quake: Why It Happened: 7:00 pm “The special delves deep into the key questions that scientists are racing to answer:  Why did the quake happen now?  Could it have been predicted?  And when and where might the next "big one" strike?  Geologist Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado travels to Haiti to explore the enormous forces that caused this disaster.” -Discovery

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
