The symposium will be launched by keynote speaker, Dr. Teresa Gowan, Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Minnesota and author of the book Hobos, Hustlers and Backsliders: Homeless in San Francisco on Wednesday March 28, 2010 in 220 Eggers Hall at 4pm.

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.
