The Marshall parking lot, across the street from Marshall Square Mall, has been chosen as the site for a new School of Management building.
      Once building plans, including parking arrangements, are worked out, the project will be brought to the Board of Trustees for final approval. The building, which will have 200,000 square feet of academic space, is part of the University’s plan to add up to 400,000 square feet of academic space and renovate nearly 350,000 square feet of existing space.

      The School of Management (SOM) is currently housed in the Crouse-Hinds School of Management Building, which no longer meets its needs. “The scope of our efforts has expanded tremendously in the last few decades,” says SOM Dean George Burman. “So, too, have expectations about the kinds of learning experiences and physical plant necessary to prepare future business leaders. A new School of Management facility will support our efforts to ready graduates to compete in a world driven by technology, global interactions, and entrepreneurial ways.”
      Vice Chancellor and Provost Deborah Freund says the Crouse-Hinds building will become available for another academic unit.


Syracuse University was graced with a steady stream of prominent guest speakers this fall. Among them:

  • Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel, who delivered the Laura Hanhausen Milton Freshman Lecture, “Confronting Fanaticism: Building Moral Unity in a Diverse Society.”
  • The Rev. Jesse Jackson, who appeared as a guest of the College Democrats and urged students to register to vote.
  • Comedian Bill Maher, who hosted a version of his ABC-TV show, Politically Incorrect, featuring local guests, including Syracuse Mayor Roy Bernardi G’73.
  • Filmmaker Spike Lee, who tackled race relations and the media.

    In October, SU men’s head basketball coach Jim Boeheim ’66, G’73 received the University’s prestigious George Arents Pioneer Medal in recognition of his professional achievements.
          SU Athletics Director Jake Crouthamel says the honor is well deserved. “In this day and age, it is rare for a major college head coach in any sport to begin and end his career at the same school,” Crouthamel says. “Jim Boeheim will have done that, and Syracuse University, his alma mater, will have spawned and been the beneficiary of yet another legendary coach. Jim has coached 24 teams without a losing season. I believe this consistency tells the true merit of his efforts and achievements.”
    boeheim       Boeheim, who became head coach in 1976, has received numerous coaching awards and is the winningest coach in Big East conference history. Entering this season, Boeheim had a 575-199 record, and had guided the Orangemen to a conference-record seven Big East titles, three Big East tournament crowns, and two appearances in the NCAA tournament finals.
          In the community, Boeheim is a driving force behind Coaches vs. Cancer, an organization that raises money for cancer research, and has worked with such groups as the Children’s Miracle Network, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Pioneer Center for the Blind and Disabled, Easter Seals, the Rescue Mission, and the Special Olympics. He also has worked to fight multiple sclerosis and cystic fibrosis, and is president of the Kidney Foundation of Central New York.

    Six SU students have been selected as members of the inaugural class of the Gates Millennium Scholars Program.
          The students are Jana Chandler ’03, a nutrition major in the College for Human Development (CHD); Nisha Gupta, a graduate student in cultural foundations of education in the School of Education; Latoya Lawrence ’03, a child and family studies major in CHD; Serene Longsworth ’01, a bioengineering major in the L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS); Donne Nguyen ’04, a bioengineering major in ECS; and Nikea Williams ’04, a public communications major in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. They were among some 4,000 students selected from 62,000 applicants nationwide.
          The Gates Millennium Scholars Program, created with a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, is a 20-year, $1 billion initiative. Through this program, the foundation hopes to reduce the financial barriers to a college education for 20,000 students by expanding access and opportunity to citizens representative of our diverse society.
