At Syracuse University, we believe it’s important that students experience the value of diversity and culture. This includes geographic diversity, as we have students traveling thousands of miles to attend our programs. Summer College works with a variety of offices on campus, including the Slutzker Center for International Services, to ensure that the students who are on campus during the summer from regions all over the world have the resources and support they need to succeed. We are also supported by the EducationUSA Higher Education Community.
