Reason No. 1,538 to come to SIPA

You all know we have some pretty amazing faculty and adjuncts at SIPA. But did you know we bring in some pretty cool talent outside of the program? What if I told you those talented people were also Seeples? Well, as Affan Javed, MPA ’16, puts it you can always find policy stars exploring the halls of SIPA’s International Affairs Building. And last week one of our very own, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, MIA ’87, stopped by for a special lecture in former NYC Mayor David Dinkins’s Practicum in Urban Policy course.

The Honorable David N. Dinkins, 106th Mayor of the nation’s largest city and the first African American Mayor elected in New York City hosts the David N. Dinkins Leadership & Public Policy Forum each year.  The forum provides a vehicle for analysis, focus and dialogue around the dynamic elements of urban policies, programs, and initiatives.  This annual forum has addressed many of the challenging issues including education, the environment, labor, tourism, immigration and fiscal crises that successful and urban ecosystems must contend with.

This year’s Forum (the 17th annual forum) is proud to welcome New York City’s 109th Mayor, Bill de Blasio, to present the keynote speech.  Mayor de Blasio, a SIPA alumnus joins the Forum’s legacy of keynoters that includes notables such as US Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton and Kirsten Gillibrand, Vice President Al Gore, Rep. Charles Rangel, Mayors Ed Rendell, Michael Nutter and Michael Bloomberg, and labor leaders John Sweeney, Lillian Roberts, Randi Weingarten and Dennis Rivera to provide the featured address.
