Syracuse University Undergraduate
Syracuse Universitys visionScholarship in Actionspeaks to the fulfillment that comes with caring about the most pressing problems that face the world, doing everything you can to understand them better, and then committing yourself to taking an active role in addressing them. Today, SU is simply burgeoning with opportunities to help you assume just that kind of role, to enable you to pursue your dreams with a passion while serving a greater purposeor, as you might say, to do well while doing good. Many of these opportunities will present themselves to you through the structures of your academic program. For example, as part of a course assignment, you may very well find yourself working collaboratively with teams of other students, professors, and members of the local community to examine a global issue that we face locally, right here in Syracuse, such as promoting economic development that is sustainable, making our indoor and outdoor environments healthier, or developing creative approaches to K-12 education that will make it more engaging for all students. Likewise, you may find yourself tackling issues like these as part of an extracurricular activity with a student organizationmaybe even creating an organization to meet an unmet need you see. SU has established extensive and reciprocal partnershipsthroughout the city and region, even at our study abroad sites on four continentsthat will provide virtually limitless opportunities for you to learn among local communities of experts and explore how you can make a difference in the world.
