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.

Shana Udvardy ’90 BA (IR) has articled published on the importance of confirming new FEMA administrator

alum-news-button

Shana Udvardy’s article, “5 Reasons Why Congress Should Immediately Greenlight the Nation’s Natural Disaster Responder-in-Chief,” was published in June of 2017. In the article, Udvardy draws from her expertise as a climate preparedness specialist with the Climate & Energy program at the Union of Concerned Scientists. She posits that Congress should waste no time confirming the newly appointed Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administrator, Brock Long. It appears Udvardy’s plea to Congress paid off: In late June of 2017, shortly after Udvardy’s article was published, Brock was confirmed as FEMA’s next administrator by the U.S. Senate with an overwhelming majority. More information about Udvardy and her article can be found here.
