Syracuse University is a private, coeducational, diverse institution of higher education dedicated to faculty excellence and scholarly distinction. Syracuse is committed to attracting and supporting enterprising students and to pursuing a close interaction and engagement with the world?locally, nationally and globally. Located at the geographical center of New York State, its 12,144 full-time undergraduate and 3,927 full-time graduate students are drawn from all 50 states and 90 foreign countries.
The Syracuse University vision embraces Scholarship in Action as education that is not static or for its own sake, but the living expression of insights that incite change?one person at a time being moved to change lives, neighborhoods, and the world. We encourage students to bridge academic disciplines and to create strong connections to society. We encourage faculty and students to come together from all walks of life to engage each other in heightened intellectual discourse. Education, at Syracuse, is about blending theory and practice where students are empowered to find meaningful applications for their learning.
