Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

How do foreign journalists tell the story of a rapidly changing China? How do they operate, what restrictions do they face, and what are the roles of their Chinese colleagues? What differences are there between television reporting and other forms of journalism in China? David Wivell has been an accredited journalist in the Beijing bureau of the Associated Press for the past eight years. A fluent Mandarin speaker who studied at Nanjing University and Beijing University, he has visited each of China's thirty-three provinces to report on cultural and economic developments, natural disasters, social unrest, politics, and science.

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.
