Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

“Communication and Conflict.”  Guest Speaker: Steven Pike, Assistant Professor, S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, Syracuse University. Communication sits at the core of both conflict and conflict resolution, in such forms as diplomacy, negotiation, reputation, credibility, naming and shaming, informing, provoking, condemning.  Understanding some of the tools of communication, and how they can be used and misused, provides conflict resolution practitioners and scholars useful models for their work. Steven Pike spent over 20 years with the U.S. Department of State as a diplomat and foreign service officer. He served as director of policy for the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs; public affairs counselor at the U.S. Embassy in the United Arab Emirates; and spokesman and media director of the U.S Mission to Canada. 

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. Be sure to check out the full list of speakers.

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.
