Alvaro Salas, Ph.D. Student in Public Administration and International Affairs at the Syracuse University Maxwell School.   
This study attempts to understand the perceptions and beliefs of public officials and representatives from various decision-making groups that are relevant to the public and private partnership fields and transportation infrastructure policies in Costa Rica. This research will serve at least three purposes. First, it will help parse out various perspectives on transportation infrastructure.  Second, the results will inform research in several areas, including transportation infrastructure policy, public-private partnerships, and public participation and civic engagement. Finally, it will elucidate themes in this area that are worthy of future research. The hope is that this research will generate both academic and practitioner-oriented publications and presentations. 
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.

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.
