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:
- Military leave and public service leave;
- Flexible work arrangements for those who continue military service, depending on role/department needs;
- Remitted tuition program, to assist former military and their spouses to continue their education;
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!
