The Moynihan Chair at the Maxwell School, Syracuse University
Amy Ellen Schwartz, an internationally renowned scholar of education policy, public finance, and urban economics, will join the Maxwell School of Syracuse University this fall as Daniel Patrick Moynihan Chair in Public Affairs. Schwartz, a professor of public policy, education, and economics at New York University, where she also serves as director of the interdisciplinary Institute for Education and Social Policy, will join Maxwell in August 2014 with a joint appointment in the Department of Public Administration and International Affairs and the Department of Economics.  The Moynihan Chair was endowed in 2007 by the Leon Levy Foundation in honor of the late senator, who was a longtime friend and former faculty member of the Maxwell School.
