Our acclaimed alumni have been making their mark on the world since Syracuse University’s founding in 1870. Whether in the arts, entertainment, journalism, business, government, law, scientific research, human services or anything in between, our graduates have made significant contributions to creating a better tomorrow.

Student Relief

The last year and a half has taught us that we cannot predict the next emergency that will impact our students, community, country or world. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Syracuse University used emergency funds to help our students respond to unforeseen challenges, but now we need to replace those funds, so we are well prepared for future unexpected needs.

Support a Global Cause

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

At Syracuse University, we champion equity and view it as a dimension of excellence in decision-making. In an effort to ensure inclusivity throughout our campus, we will continue to unpack racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, ableism, classism, religious and political discrimination, and more.

Global Connectivity

From satellite campuses, abroad opportunities, international engagement to post-traditional education, Syracuse University is dedicated to forming the leaders of tomorrow by allowing them global experiences that apply to their field and open their perspective.

Veteran and Military Community
