The Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs will welcome Syracuse University Men’s Basketball Head Coach Jim Boeheim '66, G’73 at 4 p.m., Friday, Sept. 9, for a wide-ranging discussion about the intersection of life, basketball and citizenship. Boeheim will take the stage with Chris Faricy, associate professor of political science and Hicker Family Professor in Renewing Democratic Community.

Boeheim has guided the Orange to winning records in 45 of 46 campaigns and pushed Syracuse into the postseason in all but four of his seasons. Syracuse has made 35 trips to the NCAA Tournament, including Final Four appearances in 1987, 1996, 2003, 2013 and 2016. The Orange won the national championship in 2003.

Boeheim enters the 2022-23 season ranked second among Division I head coaches in victories, trailing only former Duke mentor Mike Krzyzewski. Among Boeheim’s many honors, in 2006 he was inducted into the James Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. He also served as an assistant coach on Krzyzewski’s U.S. Olympic Team coaching staff that won gold medals in Beijing (2008), London (2012) and Brazil (2016). 

This event is part of a series of discussions hosted by the Hicker Family Professor in Renewing Democratic Community to promote civil discourse and mutual understanding. Please watch the Maxwell calendar for more events in October and November. 

Please note this is a private event for the Syracuse University community: students, faculty and staff.
