Faculty and Staff Offered Discount for Alumni College Courses
As a way to engage the Orange Community during the COVID-19 pandemic, University College (UC), in partnership with the Office of Alumni Engagement, launched Alumni College, a new program of online courses for alumni, parents and friends of Syracuse University. A $200 discount is now available to Syracuse University faculty and staff to show appreciation for their commitment and dedication during this difficult time.
Without having to leave the comfort and safety of home, faculty and staff can take a variety of noncredit courses at the reduced rate of $344 through Alumni College. Visit this online chart for the course numbers that reflect the reduced rate. The online courses will be taught by current Syracuse University faculty and instructors.
Each four-week course has a weekly evening live session with asynchronous content between sessions. There are over 20 different topics to choose from, including health care, forensic science, short story writing and personal documentary filmmaking. Attendees can strengthen their skills, learn a new craft and increase their knowledge base.
“Our Syracuse University faculty and staff have shown tremendous resiliency and flexibility during the last several months, making the success of our students their first priority,” says Michael Frasciello, dean of University College. “Alumni College is another way for our Orange Community to stay engaged through continuous learning.”
Registration for Session I ends June 29. Registration for Session II ends July 27.
