CBT-SaveFromEmail-crop

Started in 1983, Coming Back Together (CBT) was the first reunion of its kind in the nation. CBT brings African American and Latino alumni back to campus to celebrate their accomplishments and see how Syracuse University has grown and changed over the years. It also introduces current students to successful alumni to make connections and get their advice on making the most of their time after graduation.

Held every three years, CBT gives our alumni an opportunity to catch up, reminisce, and share their vision for how they can keep the University moving forward. The weekend features a full schedule of distinguished speakers; networking, social, and academic events.  Read more about the schedule of CBT events and registration here.

90th Anniversary Event: Carving Through Borders: Discrimination, Immigration, and Citizenship on 9/18

The Syracuse University’s Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration at the Maxwell School along with the College of Visual and Performing Arts presents

“Carving Through Borders: Discrimination, Immigration, and Citizenship”

This unique collaborative event sponsored by PARCC at the Maxwell School and the College of Visual and Performing Arts will bring together Syracuse University faculty and Santiago Armengod, a Mexico City based printmaker who attempts to communicate the urgency of radical change through his artwork.   The discussion will focus on the tensions in American society and policy in relation to  immigration and citizenship, with a particular spotlight on the artistic expression of the discrimination experienced by many Latin Americans.  The event will begin with a reception and an exhibition of large-scale prints created by VPA students and activist-artists as part of VPA’s Steamroller Project and be followed by a panel discussion.

The “Carving Through Borders” art exhibition is part of the VPA School’s long-running Steamroller project.  The artwork was a collaborative effort among VPA printmaking students and faculty Holly Greenberg and Dusty Herbig, along with San Francisco artist and activist Favianna Rodriguez. The artwork was completed in March 2014 during a public event in San Francisco, where artists created seven-foot-long woodcarvings that were inked and transferred onto muslin cloth by a team of Syracuse University Students using a two-ton steamroller. The end product was large-scale cloth prints that not only serve as artwork, but can be used as a tool for expression during rallies and marches.

The Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration

PARCC at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University is a multi-faceted, interdisciplinary research center that advances both theory and practice in the fields of conflict and collaboration. Founded by Dr. Louis Kriesberg in 1986 with Hewlett Foundation funding, PARCC was initially known for its breakthrough work in conflict transformation, intractable conflicts, and identity conflicts in the international arena.

With the addition of participating scholars, its areas of interest have grown to include environmental conflicts, advocacy and activism, and, most recently, collaborative governance. PARCC’s commitment to practice can be seen in its Summer Institute, which has trained individuals in the skills of conflict resolution and collaboration for over 25 years, a graduate-level Certificate in Conflict Resolution, a Conflict Management Practice Group, and policy-relevant publications.

PARCC faculty members serve as consultants for training, community development, negotiation, evaluation, and the design and study of peace-building projects. E-PARCC, an innovative education project, is a web-based collection of cases, simulations, and syllabi for the teaching of collaborative governance. All materials, authored by top scholars, are available in multiple languages for all to use.
