Maxwell Perspective describes undergraduate programs and experience

Perspective Mag Fall 2019 v2Selected articles from the fall 2019 edition of Maxwell Perspective are now available online. The edition is highlighted by a 12-page exploration of undergraduate education at the Maxwell School. Noting that this year’s freshmen were the first directly admitted to Maxwell, the article then covers the many ways in which undergrads benefit from the School’s classroom offerings, interdisciplinary traditions, and opportunities for internships and other immersive experiences. Though the School’s focus on undergraduates has benefited from some recent enhancements — including the “direct admission” program — in fact Maxwell has always been home to a great undergraduate education. The full article is available at Undergrads@Maxwell.

Also featured in the fall 2019 edition is a profile of alumna Mary Daly, who heads the San Francisco branch of the Federal Reserve; an appreciation of recently deceased faculty member Matt Bonham, who built the professional emphasis into the MAIR program; coverage of the new Veterans Program for Politics and Civic Engagement; and a profile of new faculty member Jok Madut Jok; among many other articles.
