Academic life at Syracuse University relies on open-mindedness, inclusive visions, transparent dialogue and communications and an understanding that the sum of our parts is always stronger than who we are individually.

Syracuse University believes in the power of individual experience; it believes difference is a gift, the essence of growth and education; and it believes in the idea of many thousands, from many backgrounds, coming together as a whole.

Finding answers to complex problems requires not only the willingness to seek new knowledge, but the commitment to finding it.

Across disciplines, leaders from numerous professionally- and academically- oriented organizations work campus-wide to promote academic achievement and civic engagement among all members of the campus community, particularly historically underrepresented or marginalized populations.
