An Invitation From the Dean: Join us for Orange Central 9/16 and 9/17.

Dear Maxwell Alumni,

I am very honored to have been chosen as the 10th Dean of Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. It is an extraordinary opportunity to lead a school with such a remarkable reputation, not only for academic excellence, but for the enthusiasm, loyalty, and generosity of its graduates.

Having taught as a member of the Maxwell faculty for a dozen years, I am privileged to know many alumni, and I look forward to speaking and working with all of you to further expand Maxwell’s visibility and influence across the country and around the world.

I would like to personally invite you to come back to Syracuse for the upcoming Orange Central weekend September 16-18.  Among the many planned activities, I hope you will find time to meet me at the Maxwell Orange Central Lecture with Ambassador James B. Cunningham on Friday, September 16 (follow this link for details) or at the Maxwell Alumni Reception on Saturday, September 17 (register below).

And I thank each of you, in advance, for being active citizens for your communities, for Maxwell, and Syracuse University.  I know that we share a commitment to greatness for the Maxwell School, and I look forward to celebrating with you the many outstanding accomplishments of our faculty, staff, students, and alumni in the months and years ahead.

I hope to see you on campus in September!

Sincerely,

David M. Van Slyke, Ph.D.

Dean  | Louis A. Bantle Chair in Business-Government Policy

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. Sign up here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1TxzZzwJrxtjWH7ZDGjkjU6Ub-34cMQXNohEEtZcASoc/viewform

Thank you for your consideration and your support of the students!
