ESF, Syracuse University Announce Renewed Academic, Research-Based Partnership
Agreement elevates longstanding relationship between institutions
Syracuse University Chancellor Kent Syverud and SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) Interim President David Amberg today, Aug. 26, jointly announced a renewed agreement that enhances academic, co-curricular and research-based offerings for both institutions' students, faculty and staff.
Both leaders emphasized their commitment to extending and elevating the longstanding agreement between Syracuse University and ESF and maintaining an equitable and mutually beneficial partnership. Pending state approval, the renewed partnership provides students with access to academic and student life-related activities at one institution that may not be available at the other.
"For more than a century, our two institutions have worked together to benefit our students, faculty and staff and the residents of the Central New York community," said Chancellor Syverud. "This continuing partnership allows us to leverage our individual areas of strength and expertise to further advance our collective research and academic goals. It also enables us to further attract talented students, faculty and staff, while guaranteeing both communities access to world-class research, academic and co-curricular opportunities."
"Our partnership with Syracuse University is built on a foundation of shared values to provide the highest quality education to our students and that through exposure to inquiry develops lifelong learners," said Amberg. "Our collaborative research efforts develop solutions to today's pressing environmental challenges and inform sound, reasoned policy. Working together, we are able to amplify the impacts of our tripartite missions of education, research and service."
As part of the agreement, Syracuse University students can enroll in ESF courses in subject areas not offered at Syracuse University. In turn, ESF students will have similar access to Syracuse University courses. Additionally, ESF students will be able to use the new Barnes Center at The Arch, enhancing their access to recreational resources, services and activities.
The newly signed agreement remains in effect through 2024, at which time the leaders of both institutions will review new opportunities for continued partnership.
