Cultural and Social Opportunities

Getting connected and active on campus

Our campus is full of ways to enjoy the diversity of our campus. While you're here, you will have the chance to meet people from around the world and across the United States. We also care about creating a supportive environment that enables you to connect with others who share your culture, language, and faith. Here are some parts of the network that will connect you during your time at Syracuse University.

The Syracuse Area Middle East Dialogue Group was formed over 20 years ago by seven representatives of each of three communities: Palestinians, Jews, and concerned “others.” Over those two decades, the Dialogue Group has worked locally, nationally and internationally to promote a peaceful solution to the conflict in the Middle East.

It connects people of all faiths and no faith through active engagement, mutual dialogue, reflective spirituality, responsible leadership and a rigorous commitment to social justice.
