Dear Members of the Marxe Community,

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Public Affairs Week 2020. Public Affairs Week is the only time each year that the Marxe School comes together across all of our degree programs to explore pressing issues of the day with leading experts in academia and professional practice. This year’s program features a quartet of concerns, two domestic and two international, that are also central issues in this year’s political campaigns. I look forward to four nights of provocative conversation and penetrating questions.
