Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility

Syracuse University believes that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect.

That’s why you'll find an environment of inclusion and diversity, providing opportunity for anyone and everyone who seek it. We also work to educate members of the University about their rights and responsibilities with regard to how they are treated and how they treat others.
