Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

Please join Catherine Bertini on Friday, April 28th, for a series of panels featuring food security experts, alumni, Maxwell professors, and students that will highlight some of the issues to which she has dedicated her career.
Building on Bertini’s 10 years as the Executive Director of the World Food Programme (WFP), panels will focus on food security issues as they affect women and girls, short term crises such as the massive famines the world now faces, and how foreign policy objectives can be fashioned to make a difference.
Catherine Bertini is currently in her 12th and final year at the Maxwell School, where she teaches courses in Food Security, Humanitarian Action, Girls’ Education, and the United Nations. Before joining the Maxwell School, she served as the Under Secretary-General for Management at the United Nations following her tenure at the WFP.

Lunch will be served. RSVP to Oana Zabava 315-443-9248

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.
