Moynihan Challenge Conference:

Building Community Capacity to Adapt to Climate Change across Sites, Groups and Scales

Social scientists are paying increased attention to human adaptation to climate change, attempting to understand how, where, and when climate change adaptation is occurring (or not), and the challenges involved. We are bringing together a diverse group of scholars to discuss how different disciplines are approaching and studying climate adaptation. This workshop aims to enhance critical conversationsabout climate change adaptation across academic disciplines, thereby engaging with different perspectives that can foster integrative analyses and further collaborations. We hope to generate actionable research topics for future study and ideas about how social science research can further contribute to practitioners and policy-makers working on climate adaptation projects around the world.

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.
