Central American Spring?

Guatemala is facing a major political crisis. A U.N. commission helped uncover a corruption scheme that shook Guatemala's regime. The President and Vice-President of Guatemala resigned and were jailed.
Honduras and El Salvador are following suit in this widespread anti-corruption sentiment. Could this be a tipping point to a "Central American Spring"? Dr. Eduardo Stein Barrillas, former Vice President of Guatemala, will lead a panel discussion on the effects of UN intervention and civil society movements in Central America.

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.
