Despite U.S. support of India's freedom, after India's independence India and the U.S. ended up on opposite sides of the Cold War. While there were sporadic periods of warmth, the Bangladesh war and India’s peaceful nuclear tests of 1974 did not bring the two countries closer. This trajectory continued until the end of the 1990s. Only since the early 2000s has the relationship started to strengthen, and now it is vibrant and multi-dimensional. A former US Secretary of State did not exaggerate a few months back when he remarked that the India-US relationship is the most important bilateral relationship of the next 100 years.

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.
