From its founding in 1870, Syracuse University has been the embodiment of Scholarship in Action—education that transcends traditional boundaries through a combination of innovative thinking, daring choices and entrepreneurial attitude. Our iconic campus is nestled amongst the rolling hills of Central New York—itself a crucible of historic change and progress. Building on that foundation, SU continues to create opportunities for students and faculty to push limits, build pathways, and make connections that lead to new discoveries and transformational change.
