STOP Bias is an educational campaign dedicated to preventing acts of bias on the SU campus.
The BE Wise campaign strives to generate awareness of alcohol poisoning, how to avoid it, its signs, and how to respond to it.
To support and promote the academic achievement, multicultural competence, social development, civic engagement, and retention of students from historically underrepresented racial/ethnic groups at Syracuse University.
We are writing in the wake of last night’s incident in front of Faegan’s in the Marshall Street area during which seven Syracuse University students were arrested by the Syracuse Police Department. We can report that each student is back on campus and looking forward to taking part in Commencement activities this weekend.
We take this incident seriously and have already engaged in conversations with the Syracuse Police Department. We want to share that a plan will be in place for the start of the Fall 2013 semester that will bring together a diverse and representative group of students, senior University administrators, the SU Department of Public Safety and representatives from the Syracuse Police Department, including Chief Frank Fowler. The goal of this group will be to engage in a dialogue about how we can strengthen our relationships and work together to create a safe and inclusive environment for all.
Over the summer, as we are organizing this initiative and finalizing plans for this effort, we very much would appreciate hearing your thoughts, ideas and suggestions.

The annual La Fuerza Community Enhancement Award was established in April of 1994. During the 2002 award ceremony it was renamed after its founder Irma Almirall-Padamsee, former Associate Dean of Student Relations/Director Office of Multicultural Affairs at Syracuse University. Irma Almirall-Padamsee conceived the award to recognize the graduates who were dedicated to bridging communication among the many diverse groups of Syracuse University.
The Irma Almirall-Padamsee La Fuerza Community Enhancement Award is in recognition of exemplary individuals for their outstanding contributions and commitment to diversity. These individuals have used their energy, spirit and leadership in initiating and implementing actions that help our campus community to create dialogue among people from diverse cultural groups including race, socioeconomic status, sex, age, (dis) ability, sexual orientation, religion and have forged meaningful bridges across identities on the Syracuse University campus.
This year we recognized six outstanding individuals:
Left to Right: Lori-Ann J. Bramwell, Kishauna E. Soljour, Michael L. Rainbow, Christiona M. Hawkins, Angel Luis Arroyo III, Fariha Ahmed
