- Support NYC programming
- Support another part of SU that’s meaningful to you

Support NYC Programming
It’s easy to see the advantages a New York City learning experience brings to SU students. Opportunities to learn from the world’s leading experts, visits to unmatched cultural institutions, the challenges of living in a major metropolitan environment—all of these give students real-world insights that simply can’t be gained anywhere else.
You can make such experiences possible by designating your gift toward immersion programs that place students in the heart of NYC, where they receive hands-on, experiential learning opportunities to support their professional pursuits. While some programs are endowed, many more are not and rely on ongoing funding. Your gift can be a source of crucial support for these programs and other NYC-based initiatives in SU’s schools and colleges.
Support Another Part of SU that’s Meaningful to You
If your passion lies on the SU campus or in any of SU’s other regional or international centers, you can direct your gift accordingly. Whether you decide to support the dean’s fund in your school or college, student scholarships, faculty recruitment and retention, academic programs, facilities, or research, your gift will make a real difference to SU students.
Endow a New York City-Based Program
Students from across SU’s schools and colleges participate in NYC immersion programs both large and small. During a New York City trip for the creative writing graduate program, for example, third-year students are able to spend time visiting publishers, literary agents, and literary magazines in New York City, all expenses paid. The program is made possible by a generous endowment established by Alan Mirken. Other endowments have established programs that run through the summer, during spring break, or even for one day. Regardless of the time frame, they provide students with unmatched access to the world beyond the Syracuse campus.
