"Sustaining Boundary Waters: The Role of the International Joint Commission in Preventing and Resolving water conflicts in US-Canada shared waters." IJC Commissioner Dereth Glance will discuss the role of the Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909 which established the International Joint Commission as an autonomous body charged with preventing and resolving water conflicts between the United States and Canada. For over 100 years, the IJC has worked from coast to coast in large and small watersheds to fulfill this obligation under the treaty. Commissioner Glance will discuss the application of strong science and effective governance that support ongoing harmony between Canada and the United States. Her talk will specifically focus on the IJC International Watershed Initiative and priorities in the Great Lakes, including proposed regulation approaches and the forthcoming Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement.

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.
