Thursday, March 19, 2009

On Thursday, March 19, Syracuse University Chancellor and President Nancy Cantor delivered her yearly address to the University community. In her address, titled “Remaking America: Universities as Anchor Institutions–The Syracuse Example,” Chancellor Cantor reflected on President Obama’s call to action for universities to use their intellectual capital to reform our schools, cleanse our natural environment, bridge the toxic schisms in our social environment, and mobilize our talented youth in “Remaking America,” and described SU’s engagement in these pressing issues in the City of Syracuse and across the world.

Chancellor Cantor also announced that she has directed $2 million in external funding SU recently received toward 19 Chancellor’s Leadership Projects. The projects exemplify the University’s vision of Scholarship in Action and bring together faculty, students and experts from various disciplines to address critical societal issues affecting the Central New York community and the larger world.
