Campus Community Invited to Community Engagement Reception and Warehouse Tour on May 3
Syracuse University students, faculty and staff spend countless hours working, studying, designing and collaborating at the Nancy Cantor Warehouse. The building is home to the Office of Community Engagement, the Division of Marketing and Communications and the School of Design in the College of Visual and Performing Arts.
On Friday, May 3, from 4 to 6 p.m., the campus community is invited to the Warehouse to experience all of the goings-on in the building. Attendees are encouraged, but not required, to R.S.V.P. to the event. A brief speaking program will be held at 4 p.m. on the fourth floor, where attendees can learn more about the outcomes of the Office of Community Engagement’s efforts and its plans for the future.
The office’s mission is to build on the University’s rich history of engaging with the community by supporting relationships that enhance the academic enterprise and the experiences of students, faculty and staff while also strengthening the community. At the May 3 event, the office will share ways it has carried out this mission across the campus and within the community and describe future plans.
“We are excited to have campus and community members at the Warehouse to engage around the partnership between Syracuse University and its surrounding communities,” says Bea González, vice president for community engagement and special assistant to the Chancellor. “A relationship rich with history and partnership, the ways in which we ensure authentic community engagement experiences and provide mutual access to the benefits that the campus and community bring are ever-evolving and improving.”
Following the program, attendees are invited to tour the building’s spaces, including the renovated second floor where the Division of Marketing and Communications team resides.
The exhibitions at the Point of Contact, Link and the Sue and Leon Genet galleries, as well as other student work, will be available for viewing:
- Point of Contact will feature “Plans are Cancelled,” Syracuse University’s M.F.A. thesis work by students Taylor Clock, Candice Corgan, Rene Gortat, Megan King, Jeremy Tarr and Jie Wang.
