"Taking a Communication Perspective in Community Work: Using Coordinated Management of Meaning (CMM) in Ramla, Israel," with Beth Fisher-Yoshida, Academic Director of Columbia University's Negotiation and Conflict Resolution Program. Professionals working on the community level engage with members of the community in a variety of ways. They are rewarded for their contributions and also face challenges, some unique to their type of work. In this presentation. Beth Fisher-Yoshida will explore the work she did in Ramla, one of the few mixed cities in Israel. She will highlight the use of the Coordinated Management of Meaning (CMM), which focuses on taking a community perspective as the lens with which to enrich and support the work of these professionals.

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.
