"Addressing Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs): A Challenge for Collaborative Global Governance" - Prof. Schmitz will discuss a research project that focuses on the challenges of international collaboration in addressing the deadly consequences of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Today, NCDs are responsible for 60% of global deaths and continue to rise rapidly as a global health challenge. While students of global governance have variously studied the role of scientists, NGOs, industry, the public, or states, this literature has yet to be applied to understanding the global response to NCDs. This presentation provides a basic overview of the issue as well as the global policies in place, and hopes to enlist the audience in advancing this project towards a grant proposal and publication.

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.
