Shades of Orange

The Office of Program Development is pleased to present our new monthly e-newsletter, Shades of Orange, where we will share with you the work being done on your behalf.

During our alumni listening tour we heard you and one of the things you made clear is that you wanted us to deliver more information on Black and Latino alumni and student achievement. To that end, we have implemented a communication strategy specifically for our community of color.

We are bringing on a digital specialist and refreshing our platforms to serve you better. We launched our redesigned website just last month, you are reading our new Shades of Orange newsletter now, and we are creating fresh new content for our social media platforms. You can rest assured we will continue to publish Syracuse Manuscript three times per year, and all issues are archived online for easy reference.

The inaugural issue of Shades of Orange brings you the latest updates on CBT 2017, alumni and student spotlights, along with opportunities for you to support our work, which is, of course, to support this community.  We hope you are happy with this new effort and that the stories you read will touch and inspire you.  Please feel free to email us with any suggestions or comments at

Go Orange,

Rachel Vassel
Assistant Vice President
