Salam Neighbor, a documentary film

Just seven miles from the Syrian border, two Americans head to the world’s second largest refugee camp, to live among 85,000 uprooted refugees in Jordan’s Za’atari camp. As the first filmmakers allowed by the United Nations to register and set up a tent as a home inside a refugee camp, Zach and Chris plunge into the heart of the world’s most dire humanitarian crisis of our century.

Open to the public.

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.
