Last week, the Board of Trustee announced that Kent D. Syverud had been selected to become the 12th Chancellor and President of Syracuse University. Syverud, has been the Dean of the School of Law at Washington University in St. Louis since 2006. As a whole community, we’re all excited to welcome Kent Syverud back to Upstate New York, as he’s originally from Rochester, New York, and we’re extremely excited to teach him how to “Bleed Orange”, as he received his Bachelor’s Degree from Georgetown University, and Law Degree from the University of Michigan. Syracuse University began a new chapter a few months ago, when we officially became a part of the ACC, and we’re excited to welcome our next Chancellor in January when returning from Winter Break. After officially being notified of his selection, Chancellor-designate Syverud said, “Syracuse University is an inspiring institution, one of its most striking characteristics is the way that every constituency—faculty, students, staff, alumni—exudes a balance of humility and ambition, which, I believe, is the essence of what has enabled SU to be so boldly innovative and achieve such great things throughout its history. I am honored by the opportunity to lead SU, determined to help every part of it achieve its potential and, together, carry forward this remarkable legacy.”
