Keynote speaker in celebration of Maxwell's 90th Anniversary at the kickoff of the International Sociological Association Conference, "The Missing Working Class"

This presentation will discuss the situation of young adults in the United States with high school degrees but not bachelors degrees. They constitute a large group that has been greatly affected by the globalization and automation of production. They are the heirs of the industrial working class, and they are being overlooked in our political discourse. The presentation will talk about the sharp changes in partnering, marrying, and having children that have occurred to them over the past several decades. Both labor market and cultural explanations for these changes will be explored, as well steps that could be taken to assist them.

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.
