Join us for a University-wide commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

East Germany, the year 1989: A young man protests against the regime and is arrested. His mother suffers a heart attack and falls into a coma. When she wakes up from it, the wall is gone and the country she knew no longer exists. What unfolds now is a bittersweet comedy about the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Watch the calendar for additional film showings as well as lectures and a digital story contest.  Join your fellow students on October 20th to erect a symbolic replica of the Berlin Wall outside Maxwell Hall and celebrate the fall of the wall on October 25th.

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.
