Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

As many of you may know, Professor Peter Howe passed away December 23, 2016 unexpectedly. In honoring his memory, a paver has been installed in the Orange Grove on the SU Quad, where we will meet on Friday October 6, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. to celebrate his time at Syracuse University as a student and as a faculty member. A reception will follow with light refreshments in 110 Eggers Hall.

Peter was a valued faculty member of the Economics Department since 2014. He was a dedicated alum and received his Ph.D. in Economics from SU in 2003, after serving in the Army following high school and then working at Miller Brewing until its closing in 1994. Peter was a passionate teacher, and loved both his traditional students as well as his non- traditional students who came back to school, as he had, later in life.

Peter was an adored husband, father, grandfather, colleague, and friend. 

Parking is available in Irving Garage.

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.
