First Year Experience

As identified in the Academic Strategic Plan, supported by the work of the Chancellor’s Council on Diversity and Inclusion and other University wide committees, a unified first-year experience that addresses issues of diversity, inclusion, belonging, community, health and wellness are key components in supporting students’ academic, social and emotional well-being began in the Fall of 2018. Through a shared experience, we set the foundation for our students’ success inside and outside the classroom.

Collectively, these experiences engage our students – and the broader campus community – in exploration of and dialogue about identity, community and wellness, and advance our continuous efforts to foster a more inclusive, welcoming campus community for all. With this effort, we aim to build shared community, improve cross-cultural understanding, and increase healthy habits for all our campus community members. The first-year experience sets the foundation for our students to thrive at Syracuse and beyond Syracuse.

We are currently looking for faculty, staff and graduate students to become facilitators for the Fall 2020 semester. Please review the position and apply:
