Forever Orange: The Campaign for Syracuse University

At the Newhouse School, we are counting on your support to raise $105 million, which will help ensure a future that’s as bold and boundless as we are.

The comprehensive Forever Orange campaign will raise $1.5 billion in private philanthropy from Syracuse University alumni, parents, corporate partners and friends.

We will further advance academic excellence, provide an unsurpassed student experience and create unique learning opportunities that leverage our distinctive strengths and impact our world in extraordinary ways.

The campaign seeks to attract 125,000 unique donors, and to double the proportion of alumni who are actively engaged with Syracuse University.

Newhouse goal: $105 million

OUR PURPOSE

The roots of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications can be traced back 100 years, to the founding of the Department of Journalism at Syracuse University in 1919. Since then, Newhouse has grown to become the most comprehensive school of communication in the country—and, many would argue, the best.

But the communications industry is in flux, as old business models collapse and new technologies transform everything we do. Though it can feel like a precarious time for our professions, it is actually a time of great potential, as we reimagine the future of communications and train our students to face and embrace this new era as innovators and leaders.

At the Newhouse School, we provide our students with access to the best possible tools, technologies and opportunities, even as we provide them with a solid foundation in the fundamentals: storytelling, critical thinking, ethics, scholarship and a commitment to the First Amendment and the role of the free press in our democracy. The result of our efforts can best be seen in our extensive network of loyal, accomplished alumni and friends, whose support has been the cornerstone of our continued success.
