Maxwell Welcomes Our Newest Students!

July and August are among the most exciting times of year at the Maxwell School. Having said farewell to the newest alumni of the School in May and June, Maxwell faculty and staff prepare during the summer to welcome the newest classes of students in the MPA, MA IR, and Executive MPA and MA IR programs.

Maxwell Students Attend 2016 International City/County Management Association Conference

imca-full-group

The Maxwell alumni connection with current students continued to grow this weekend as fifteen public administration hopefuls attended the 2016 International City/County Management Association (ICMA) annual conference in Kansas City, MO.  Students had the opportunity to learn from and network with local and state government officials from around the United States and across the world.

While at the conference, Maxwell students had the opportunity to hear from award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien and renowned New York Times columnist and author David Brooks.  While both speakers shared experiences through the lens of media, a common theme was found urging public leaders to look deeply into constituents lives and understand different points of views.  Keynote speaker David Brooks challenged each leader to not fear the term `love’ in conversations about public policy.

Maxwell students also had the great pleasure of gaining insight about the possibilities of local government careers from alumni of the Maxwell School who are currently shaping the futures of municipal governments.  Through the generosity of Maxwell’s alumni, a reception was held on Sunday, September 25 and a lunch Monday, September 26, where the students had the opportunity to learn from, network with and receive career guidance from over fourteen wonderful alumni.

Jace Beehler, Lindsey Callahan, Rainea Cumberbatch, Chloe Elberty, Cristian Ernesto, Zhenhao Gong, Briana Graham, Olga Grishina, Kevin Hundelt, Krishna Kesari, Vahid Khatami, Umar Kiyimba, Ronald Mak, Ariana Morrocco, Linnea Powell, and James Tatum would like to thank all of the distinguished alumni who made this such an enriching trip.  They would like to give a special acknowledgment to Wally Bobkiewicz ’89 MPA, City Manager of Evanston, IL.  Wally, along with dozens of alumni, have funded students’ travel to the ICMA conference for over a decade.  Without Wally’s leadership, passion and generosity this trip would not have been possible.

DC Alums – The Students are Coming! Coffee and Couches Needed – Can You Help?

The 8th annual Washington, DC graduate student networking trip is fast approaching on March 13, 14, & 15 and we need your help!

Maxwell students are incredibly excited about the trip, as well as the opportunity to engage with the amazing alumni who make up the Maxwell family. As always, this trip wouldn’t be possible without support from alums like you. If you can help us by sharing your home or hosting a coffee chat please follow the instructions below to register your support.

Housing Help
While some students in our class have DC area connections, many students still need housing. Our students are considerate, tidy guests who will make every effort to work around your schedule. Whether you have an extra room, open couch, or floor space for a blow-up mattress, our students would greatly appreciate your assistance in keeping this trip affordable. Most students will arrive Sunday night, March 13, and depart on Wednesday, March 16 (3 nights). Sign up here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1qp3cHqXtdVdGnMlZ6ktguW5pMY2rJ00PTxHFEqiWEbs/viewform

Host a Coffee Chat
Do you have time to host a small coffee chat with students on Sunday, March 13; Monday, March 14; Tuesday, March 15; or Wednesday, March 16? The chats will give you an opportunity to meet the new class and tell them about your own professional development in an informal setting. After receiving your contact information, we will share it with interested students who will get in touch with you directly to schedule a meeting.
