Join us for the last in the series of film screenings:  Der Mann auf der Mauer

Kabe’s apartment faces the Berlin Wall, which is just the most visible confinement in his life in the East. He feels compelled to overcome the barriers surrounding him and tries to jump over the wall again and again. As a result, he is admitted to a mental institution and later to jail, until his life takes an unexpected turn. Filmed after the novel “Der Mauerspringer” (The Wall Jumper) by Peter Schneider.

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.
