Community Relations

Support the Central New York community during COVID-19

Syracuse University is committed to supporting the Central New York community as it responds to the COVID-19 health emergency. Faculty, staff and students are looking for ways to get involved and often are also being asked by others how the University can help.

To that end, we have formalized a process to receive, prioritize and coordinate COVID-19 community assistance initiatives across the University. If you have an idea or would like to offer assistance to the community—or if you have been approached by a community member, organization or a governmental entity for assistance—please let us know by completing this newly created form.

In response, a member of the Community Engagement team will follow up with you directly to discuss your idea, offer or request.


The Office of Community Engagement seeks to ensure mutual access to learning, resources, service and supports through a bi-directional relationship with the City of Syracuse and its surrounding areas.  The  office is a liaison with neighborhood, community, business, and nonprofit organizations on matters pertaining to campus-community relationships.  We value feedback and appreciate suggestions or ideas on ways we can continue to engage in and strengthen our partnerships with the community.  Email or call Community Engagement at 315-443-5593 anytime with a concern or a suggestion.
