"Overcoming Barriers to Reintegration."  Olive Sephuma, Director Center for New Americans, InterFaith Works of CNY. 
Olive will discuss the resettlement and post-resettlement work involved in helping refugee families fleeing conflict to re-establish their lives and overcome the barriers to successful integration in their new communities. The program she leads typically resettles 500-600 new refugees each year, and annually serves an additional 1,200 families who have been in the U.S. for less than five years.
Conversations in Conflict Studies is a weekly educational speaker series for students, faculty, and the community.  The series, sponsored by PARCC, draws its speakers from Syracuse University faculty, national and international scholars and activists, and PhD students. Pizza is served. Follow us on Twitter @PARCCatMaxwell, tweet #ConvoInConflict.

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.
