Ameen Rihani (1876-1940) was an Arab-American novelist, poet, essayist, and political figure. Upon the centennial publication of his novel,"The Book of Khalid," alumni from the Civic Education and Leadership Fellows and Leaders for Democracy Fellows programs at the Maxwell School made the bust of Rihani available as a symbol of their commitment to fostering Arab-American relations. Following the unveiling of the bust, there will be a discussion of Rihani's work and relevant message today by Professor Mehrzad Boroujerdi, Director of the Middle East Studies Program and Todd Fine, Executive Director of Project Khalid. A reception will follow in the Maxwell Foyer.

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.
