As Johns Hopkins SAIS celebrates its 75th anniversary, the magazine sat down at 555 Pennsylvania Ave (the future home of the school), with Dean Eliot A. Cohen and Student Government Association President Shamaila Ashraf for a wide-ranging conversation about our changing world, the school’s future, and curricular changes that will be nothing short of transformational.
New faculty member Yascha Mounk is on a mission to strengthen liberal democracy.
During this 75th anniversary year, we celebrate the seminal contributions of early SAIS greats, whose intellectual DNA continues to run deep in their contemporary counterparts. Our second installment in a yearlong series.
Beginning from the School’s earliest days, we highlight SAIS’s rich history and important milestones.
Your contributions are part of what makes the magazine great. Our editorial staff would love to hear from you.
This issue celebrates a significant milestone of our school, which was founded in 1943 in the midst of a world war to represent a new global economic order led by scholars and practitioners of international affairs who understood the coming changes and would teach the students who would shape them.
Seventy-five years later, Johns Hopkins SAIS is an integral part of a world-class university, has campus locations on three continents, and boasts an exceptional faculty, committed staff, and talented student body. However, we stand at another watershed as the world order is tested in ways it has not been in generations.
In these pages, you will read about the latest events bringing world leaders to campus for insider perspectives on global change, the launch of the innovative Doctor of International Affairs program, the accomplishments of students learning outside the classroom in exciting practicums and internships, and about how you can join us in commemorating this anniversary of our transformative institution.
The challenges of the next 75 years will be as engaging and important as those of our past. Join us in rising to them.
