VIDEO: Community Partners Meeting 2019

By Patrick Linehan |

Every year, the Shaw Center invites faculty, staff, and community members to a collaborative meeting where they can share information, suggest programmatic changes, and ideate future projects. This is one way the Shaw Center works to sustain reciprocal relationships between Syracuse University and the surrounding community. This year, over 70 partners from campus and the community attended the meeting. Attendees participated in ice breakers over coffee; heard speeches by campus representatives, students and community partners; and mingled with colleagues.

This video was compiled from testimonials by attendees who found the meeting worthwhile and meaningful.

We hope partners continue to join us for our annual meeting. To request more information, email
