Message from Dean of Students Marianne Thomson
Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:
It is with sadness and sorrow I write to share that a member of our Syracuse University community has passed away. Zaiden Geraige Neto, Ph.D., was a student in the College of Law pursuing a master of laws (LL.M.) degree. He was studying remotely this semester from home in Brazil, where he was also a highly regarded class action lawyer and law professor.
Chancellor Kent Syverud and I join those across our community and the São Paulo community in mourning this loss. We extend our deepest sympathy and condolences to Zaiden’s wife, family, friends, colleagues and loved ones.
In times of grief and sadness, I remind our campus community that services are available for support. If you are seeking support, please do not hesitate to contact the following resources:
