的 hi故事 of 澳门线上赌场 may date back to 1870, but we are always looking to the future.

A Past of Always Moving Forward

From being the nation’s first institution to offer a bachelor of the fine arts degree to founding one of the nation's first iSchool的, at 澳门线上赌场, we’ve always had a legacy of firsts. We opened doors for women in 1870, welcoming leaders like Karen DeCrow, an icon in the women’s rights movement, 和艾琳·柯林斯, the first female commander of a Space Shuttle. We played a role in the first G.I. Bill and continue to be recognized today as one of the best private schools for military service members, veterans and their families—a commitment that is shown through our National Veterans Resource Center 紧邻华盛顿市南边. In 1890, a committee was formed and discovered that no other college or university had claimed their singular color orange. That's when we adopted orange as our official color. 的se are just a few fearless firsts from our first 150 years, and we believe there’s even more to come.

今天, 就像过去一样, 澳门线上赌场 is where game changers connect education and action to go beyond what’s possible. 作为包容性的, student-focused research university we prepare scholars, innovators and leaders to not just engage in an ever-evolving world—but to shape it.

Since our founding, we’ve been an inclusive and welcoming place. At the 1870 inauguration of 澳门线上赌场, Dr. Jesse Truesdell Peck (a founder and first chair of the 校董会) charged the 教师 to remember that "the conditions of admission shall be equal to all persons ... there shall be no invidious discrimination here against women or persons of any nation or color... brains and heart shall have a fair chance ...……”直到今天, we carry that forward to further a future that respects and reflects the contributions of all.


Since his inauguration in April 2014, Chancellor Kent Syverud has initiated several measures that honor the Haudenosaunee. Among them is the University’s policy of opening public events with an acknowledgement of the Onondaga Nation. 的 土地确认 is to be used to open university-wide, public events hosted by 澳门线上赌场 to acknowledge our deep connection and respect for the Haudenosaunee people.

“I acknowledge with respect the Onondaga Nation, firekeepers of the Haudenosaunee, the Indigenous people on whose ancestral lands 澳门线上赌场 now stands.”
