Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA)

The Forever Orange Campaign creates a world of opportunity

Forever Orange: The Campaign for Syracuse University works to ensure philanthropic support that creates an unsurpassed student experience, fosters academic excellence, and provides unique learning opportunities. Each of these overarching priorities strengthens—and is strengthened by—the University’s commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility (DEIA). With a wide variety of giving opportunities targeted to DEIA programming and initiatives, we will enhance learning and teaching by bringing together people with diverse points of view, life experiences, ethnicities, cultures and belief systems.

Since 1870, Syracuse University has understood that our unique differences are what make us stronger and allow our Orange community to connect, grow and evolve. We believe that engaging with multiple points of view, life experiences, ethnicities and cultures is essential to academic excellence and student success. By standing behind and lifting up deserving and dedicated students, we can make a positive impact and meet real needs for a single student or impact the lives of many. Together, we can amplify our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility by investing in students and faculty―allowing them to be part of a global community while fulfilling their potential and showing the world what Orange can do.
