Evening with the Chancellor
On October 15, 2014, nearly 100 Chicago alumni and friends gathered at Hotel Monaco for a reception with Chancellor Kent Syverud. Chicago is one of nine cities the Chancellor visited this fall, to share his vision for Syracuse University and Fast Forward Syracuse, the University’s new strategic initiative. In each city, guests had the opportunity to ask questions and give feedback.
“As a parent of two children at Syracuse, I was so excited to hear there was an event in Chicago to meet the new Chancellor,” said Kelly O’Connor. “Everyone was so welcoming, and I enjoyed meeting other parents, alums, and especially Chancellor Syverud—what a pleasant, funny, and well-spoken gentleman.”
The most common topics of the Chancellor’s visits have included global education and distance learning, future of the Dome and the I-81 project, future of academic programs, and ways alumni can make an impact in their local communities. Click on the images below to view the gallery.
