TSA, MES and the Department of LLL Present the Film: In Topragin Çocuklari(Children of the Land)

When the gypsy camp, where she lives, gets attacked, Karikaruns away and is saved by Cevher, who works as a teacher at a nearby village institute. With the support of Ismail Hakki, Cevherprovides a shelter for the orphaned girl, by letting her stay in the institute. However, the villagers do not like this situation at all. The institute gets pressured to throw out the gypsy girl. Military Section Commander Necip, who had been irritated by the existence of the institute for some time, attacks the institute and takes the teacher Kemal into custody. These events coincide with the closure of village institutes throughout the country. The innocence of the teacher Kemal gets proved in the end, but this does not change the unfortunate fate of village institutes in general.

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.
