Making Government Work for the People: The Legacy of William Donald Schaefer

Student Center - Wright Theater

The Schaefer Center for Public Policy in the College of Public Affairs proudly presents this inaugural Schaefer Center Forum.

William Donald Schaefer, LL.B. '41, LL.M. '51, Baltimore's iconic former mayor and former Maryland governor and comptroller, left behind an enduring legacy—a life of tireless public service and of championing for Baltimore and its people.

Join us for a panel discussion, moderated by WYPR's Fraser Smith, that will explore Schaefer's legacy and the lessons to be learned from his approach to public service.

Panel members include Nancy Grasmick, former state superintendent of schools; Sandy Hillman, head of the Baltimore Office of Promotion and Tourism when Schaefer was mayor; and Mark Wasserman, former secretary of the Maryland Department of Economic and Employment Development and chief of staff to Schaefer when the latter was governor.

Reception: 5:30-6:15 p.m.
Panel: 6:15-9 p.m.

R.S.V.P. online or at 410.837.6188.
