SU hires regional manager for Dubai office
A new regional manager in Dubai is the latest investment by Syracuse University to further build on its established presence in the Arab Gulf. Sherlyn Sychua has been appointed the regional manager for advancement and external affairs/admissions. Sychua’s responsibilities include undergraduate recruitment and admissions, as well as general efforts to develop and maintain relationships with SU alumni and institutions in the Gulf.
The SU Dubai office was established to service the growing number of Gulf students applying to universities in the United States. Sychua will oversee the SU Dubai office, which opened in June 2011 to a delegation including Chancellor Nancy Cantor, Board of Trustees Chairman Richard L. Thompson and trustee Abdallah Yabroudi of Dubai, whose support helps make the Dubai office possible.
Sychua is quick to point out that she envisions the SU Dubai office as a chance to provide more than just the opportunity to reach prospective students. “I want to ensure that alumni in the region remain engaged and active and are given opportunities to connect with and support one another,” says Sychua.
Sychua brings more than five years of recruitment and counseling experience to SU Dubai. She previously served as a senior admissions counselor at an educational consultancy company based in Dubai.
The Syracuse Dubai office is located at G30 Blk13 Knowledge Village, Dubai 500752 Dubai, UAE. It is open Sunday-Thursday, from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. The telephone number is +97144336012; fax is +97144438935. Sychua can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
