From the Chancellor: Project Advance

Dear Orange Friends:

On Ostrom Avenue, tucked into the upper floor of a building across the street from Thornden Park, is a Syracuse University program that teaches 10,000 students a year and that few know about. It is called Project Advance, which offers University classes to seniors at more than 200 high schools around the country and world. I visited the Project Advance offices during the doldrums of the summer and things there were really hopping as the dedicated staff geared up for record enrollments and new curricula for the coming academic year.

For more than 40 years, Project Advance has been an innovator in delivering high quality courses to talented high school students around the nation. Each year, more than 800 high school teachers, trained by Syracuse University faculty, teach courses to qualified high-school seniors who receive University credit for their work. The courses, which are rigorous and intellectually challenging, help prepare students for the transition from high school to college. Project Advance also contributes to the professional development of teachers and strengthens the quality of teaching in all of these schools.

So when people now ask me how many students Syracuse University has, I will remember that we have many kinds of students—including 10,000 Project Advance students—and that they all matter to our school.

Sincerely,

Kent Syverud
Chancellor Kent Syverud

From the Chancellor: Measure for Measure

Hello everyone,

Below is the latest message from the Chancellor. Enjoy!

 

Dear Orange Friends:

Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure is known as a “problem play” because it raises more questions than it answers and defies categories, including those of comedy and tragedy. Syracuse University Drama students, under the direction of Professor Celia Madeoy, are right now asking the questions and defying the categories in a production at the Loft Theater at Syracuse Stage. I saw the show Saturday. It is not to be missed.

I’d never been in the Loft space before. Nor had I seen Shakespeare in so intimate a setting, with no more than three rows between audience and performers, and the performance conducted all around you. Professor Madeoy set the play in 19th-century Vienna, and the themes of law, justice, religion, and temptation worked well, largely because of an outstanding cast that was clearly comfortable with ambiguity. This was a performance that included an array of outstanding and arresting music as well. If you want to see a play that makes you laugh, smile ruefully, think, worry, and see flashes of hypocrisy and enlightenment—as well as your own foibles—I urge you to go to the final performances this weekend.

Once again, as at most SU Drama performances, I had to remind myself at the conclusion that I was watching students, rather than professionals from the best companies. We are fortunate indeed to have SU Drama and Syracuse Stage in our community.

Sincerely,

Kent Syverud
Chancellor Kent Syverud

About Living Classrooms Foundation and the Carmelo Anthony Youth Development Center

Living Classrooms Foundation is a Baltimore-Washington, DC-based nonprofit organization that strengthens communities and inspires young people to achieve their potential through hands-on education and job training, using urban, natural, and maritime resources as “living classrooms.” The Foundation’s Carmelo Anthony Youth Development Center (CAYDC) responds to the community’s need for intervention that supports the academic and social development of disadvantaged youth. The children and youth served reside primarily in public housing and low-income neighborhoods and their communities lack many of the services found in more affluent areas. CAYDC provides services in five core areas: Education and Career Development, Character and Civic Development, Health and Life Skills, The Arts and Cultural Enrichment, and Sports and Recreation. In addition, the Center hosts a number of community events such as youth workshops and conferences, job and health fairs, family night activities, basketball tournaments, and a six-week summer camp.

CAYDC is open seven days a week. Currently, more than 200 East Baltimore youth participate in programming at the Center. CAYDC is a part of our Children’s Target Investment Zone (CTIZ) initiative that provides programs and services to residents of some of East Baltimore’s neediest neighborhoods, which include the Perkins Homes, Fayette Street corridor, and McElderry Park communities. The CTIZ initiative serves some of the community’s hardest-to-reach individuals and our Youth Centers in the Zone strengthen young people’s academic and life skills, and provide health and wellness education.
