Keeping Core Values, Adapting to New Realities: The Case of Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors without Borders

Médecins Sans Frontières plays an influential role in global humanitarian relief operations. Its brand name is strong and its policy and practical stances are unique among peer humanitarian NGOs. Sophie Delaunay, Executive Director of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) USA, will speak about the organization's core identity and goals and how it strives to keep a field driven mantra while adapting to the professionalization and internationalization of MSF and to increasingly complex and diverse humanitarian challenges Delaunay has worked with MSF in Thailand, Rwanda, China, and Korea, as well as in their French and U.S. offices.

She holds a master's degree in International Business from Le Havre University in France, and a master’s degree in Political Science from Yonsei University in Korea.

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.
