transformed Syracuse University into the national research institution it is

historical legacy, and extends to both class-leading initiatives focused on
making an SU degree accessible and affordable to the post-9/11 generation of
veterans, and also programs designed to position Syracuse University as the
employer of choice for military veterans, members of the Guard and Reserve,
and military family members.
