"Skä·noñh—Great Law of Peace Center: Decolonizing Sacred Space."   Philip P. Arnold, Associate Professor, Religion at Syracuse University,  will be speaking about his work as the Director of Skä·noñh– The Great Law of Peace Center, which tells the Indigenous story of the Haudenosaunee, also known as the Iroquois Confederacy. The center was created to educate and inspire primarily non-Haudenosaunee people about the importance of the Great Law Peace, the oral constitution that has governed the Haudenosaunee for over a thousand years, and how it has influenced the unique form of democracy that U.S. citizens cherish today. Arnold’s courses on the subject have grown increasingly popular, due to the rising number of students supported by the Haudenosaunee Promise Scholarship Program. Arnold will attempt to demonstrate SU’s vision of Scholarship in Action by presenting programming that is affordable, accessible, and, most of all, congruent with the history of the area. Professor Arnold will discuss its influence on the development of democracy, women’s rights, and the United Nations.

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.
