“Ending the 60-Year Old Korean War: A Petition to the United Nations.” The Korean War began June 25, 1950 and ended July 27, 1953; however, a state of war persists on the Korean Peninsula to this day. In the modern history of human civilization, no war has ever lasted more than half century after an official ceasefire. As a Korean proverb says, “The one who has tied a knot must untie it.” It is time to begin a transition from six decades of hostility to final closure and peace on the 60th anniversary of the Armistice Agreement. Jongwoo Han, Ph.D. Assistant Adjunct Professor of Political Science at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University

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.
