Maxwell on the Road

2017 Recruiting / Webinar Schedule

Each fall and winter, admissions professionals and alumni representatives attend graduate admissions fairs sponsored by the Association for Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA), Idealist.org Graduate Degrees for the Public Good Fairs, and the Diversity Alliance of Public Policy Schools (comprised of admissions representatives from the public policy programs at Maxwell, Harvard, the University of Michigan, Princeton, and Carnegie Mellon).

Our formal 2017 winter/spring recruiting events will be listed below.  We hope that you can join us at an event in your area - or virtually via one of our Maxwell WEBINARS.  If you find that you may be in the area, please feel free to contact us to arrange a personal visit to campus.  We are also glad to help you connect with a Maxwell graduate in your area.  E-mail us at paia@maxwell.syr.edu  You will also find our Admissions Blog helpful when considering the program. 

You may also want to connect with our alumni at any of the several informal alumni happy hours planned throughout the year (and added to the list below). An RSVP will be required for each of these events. Please identify yourself as a prospective or admitted student on the RSVP form.  As these are informal alumni gatherings, there will not necessarily be anyone from the university or admissions office present.  Many of these events will take place at 21 and older establishments, please be sure to have a valid government-issued photo ID if planning to attend. Questions should be directed to our Director of Alumni Relations, Jessica Murray, jwmurr01@syr.edu.
