Syracuse University, Greater Central New York Communities Invited to Participate in an NVRC Information Session Monday, Sept. 18
Syracuse University students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the Central New York community, are invited to participate in an information session Monday, Sept. 18, at 5:30 p.m. at the Center of Excellence, room 203, located at 727 E. Washington St., Syracuse, New York. The information session will focus on the construction of the National Veterans Resource Complex (NVRC), one of the inaugural projects contained within the University’s Campus Framework.
The information session will feature remarks from Michael Haynie, vice chancellor for strategic initiatives and innovation, and Pete Sala, vice president and chief facilities officer. Following brief remarks from Haynie and Sala, attendees will be encouraged to ask questions, offer comments and provide feedback on the project. John Barrett, the lead architect from SHoP Architects, the University’s design partner, will also be on hand to address questions about the design and architectural approach.
A first-of-its-kind facility, the NVRC seeks to advance academic research, actionable programs and community-connected innovation in service to our nation’s veterans and military families. The NVRC also represents a key point of intersection between the University’s Academic Strategic Plan and the Campus Framework, both of which support the University’s aspiration to be the best place for veterans and their families.
American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) will be available for each event. If you have requests for accessibility and accommodations, please contact the Equal Opportunity, Inclusion and Resolution Services (EOIRS) office at 315.443.4018.
