The 150-plus faculty members and roughly 800 graduate students are responsible for research that is influential and innovative.
Much of that research is conducted within the School’s research centers and institutes, but much is also completed by individuals working within their disciplines, toward purely scholarly ends. Similarly, much of Maxwell’s research is externally funded — recently, sponsored research has amounted to roughly $6 million a year — and yet much leads to the published books and articles that mark the progress of concepts and ideas in the academy. In a typical year, Maxwell faculty members publish dozens of books and monographs and hundreds of book chapters and journal articles. Their work provides up-to-date material for the classroom.
It is one of the great (and sometimes overlooked) distinctions of the Maxwell School that an institution so widely praised for its professional programs is, in fact, a home for esteemed research and scholarship across so a wide range of disciplines.
