SU Maxwell School Ph.D. Candidate Mike Newell explores the rise of the American national security and counterterrorism regime during the 19th and early 20th centuries, when the country faced threats from the KKK, Fenians, and Anarchists. In doing so, he seeks to understand the social and political processes that engendered our modern perceptions of “threat” and “security.”  Part of the Andrew Berlin Family National Security Research Fund

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.
