Commitment to Supporting and Hiring Veterans
Syracuse University has a long history of engaging veterans and the military-
connected community through its educational programs, community outreach, and
employment programs. After World War II, Syracuse University welcomed more
than 10,000 returning veterans to our campus, and those veterans literally
transformed Syracuse University into the national research institution it is
today. The University's contemporary commitment to veterans builds on this
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.

values the many similarities and differences among individuals and groups. At
Syracuse, we are committed to preparing students to understand, live among,
appreciate, and work in an inherently diverse country and world made up of
people with different ethnic and racial backgrounds, military backgrounds,
religious beliefs, socio-economic status, cultural traditions, abilities,
sexual orientations and gender identities. To do so, we commit ourselves to
promoting a community that celebrates and models the principles of diversity
