Launched in 2014, the Tenth Decade Project is a ten-year initiative that aims to focus attention on and celebrate the centennial of the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs in 2024. Grant funding associated with the Tenth Decade Project operationalizes a defined goal of the Maxwell Academic Strategic Plan to “promote research involving faculty on innovative, high impact projects, applying social science methods and data analysis to address grand, global challenges such as democracy and civic engagement, inequality, urban poverty and development, governance and security, environmental change, and health policy.”
