"Beyond Politics as Usual: The Reclaim November Ohio! Project in Ohio’s 16th Congressional District" Jefferson Action's Kyle Bozentko and Jim Meffert will outline the Reclaim November Ohio! Project, a Citizens Election Forum using the “Citizens Jury” method of deliberative democracy. In a highly volatile 2012 congressional contest between incumbents of opposite parties, the Reclaim November Ohio! Project amplified an informed and empowered voice of voters into the campaign narrative by engaging the candidates and working with media to move away from the standard horse-race and divisive rhetoric towards substantive dialogue on key economic issues. This conversation will highlight the successes and challenges of engaging a representative microcosm of voters, along with congressional candidates and the media, in substantive discussion of economic issues that matter most to voters during the peak moments of a highly contentious and otherwise rancorous 2012 election cycle.

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.
