Diane Murphy: Legacy is the fabric of your making, the principles that guide you today, and the courage to pursue the future. Here in Falk College, our shared legacy spans a century, built by students who came to Syracuse University hoping to make a difference in the world: Nutritionists who protected the health of mothers and children through the Great Depression, Nurses who joined the war effort during World War II, and social workers who stood as uncompromising advocates during the Civil Rights Movement. Whether you know us as Falk College, or know as better as the former Colleges of Human Ecology, Human Services and Health Professions, Human Development, or Nursing, we are home to generations of people committed to improving the lives of others. Our students today share the same passion as the alumni who came before them. They know what a better future looks like and are well-prepared to make their vision a reality. At an R1 research institution like Syracuse, students contribute to research and new findings in social and natural sciences. Through our top-ranked study abroad program, they learn in international settings so that they may have a global impact. They uphold a prize tradition of experiential learning and taking their skills out into the community. From the moment they arrive on campus, Their ambition is supported by meaningful mentors, high-achieving peers, and a powerful network of Syracuse University alumni. Whether they’re part of a long-standing discipline or emerging field of study, our students will build upon the work of alumni who paved the way. Together, they are the voice of social justice, responsibility, and innovation. Together, the good work continues.
