In the 12 months that have passed since we last polled our faculty on what events, news, and developments would be written into the history books, much has transpired. At times, 2017 seemed to be one endless news cycle.

To help put it all in perspective, we checked in with faculty at the School of International Service to weed out which moments, news, and developments from 2017 will be ones for the history books. The following 13 things, listed in no particular order, are what our experts say will be remembered for years to come.
