Veterans and Military Families

Syracuse University was one of the early leaders in supporting the G.I. Bill, and under Chancellor Syverud has committed to being the premier university for veterans, military-connected students and families as part of our academic strategic plan. Syracuse University has joined with other employers to sign an Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Statement of Support.

Our commitment is demonstrated through our policies and benefits, including:

Employees with former military service also have full access to programs offered by the Office of Veteran and Military Affairs and our Institute for Veterans and Military Families. We even have an app for that!

All students, staff and faculty are encouraged to voluntarily update their military status in the Personal Services section of MySlice.
