The Future of Citizenship and Public Service

 October 04, 2017 

Syracuse University - Thought leaders, practitioners and academics from across the public, private, and non-profit sectors will gather at the Syracuse University Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs to discuss, debate, and consider strategies focused on the future of public service. Keynote speakers, breakout sessions, and workshops will guide the dialogue on citizenship and public service.

Maxwell, the first-ever U.S. school of citizenship—an interdisciplinary college of social sciences with world-class professional programs, including a celebrated, number one-ranked program in public administration—in partnership with the National Academy of Public Administration will host a one-day, highly interactive symposium intended to address some of the big questions about the future that our local, state, national governments and non-profit officials are facing:

  • How do we elevate the discussion from debates about issues and policy preferences to the broader elements of what is needed to effectively address and benefit from informed citizenship engagement?  
  • What do we need to do today to identify, prepare, and motivate the future workforce to ensure we prepare the people, skills and capacity necessary to effectively govern and lead?
  • What does the future of public service in America look like?
  • How do we inspire, motivate and prepare the next generation of citizens to be successful in professional pursuits in service to the public?
