UWCNY named 2014 Community Partner

SU 2014 Partner Award

United Way of Central New York is honored to be named the Syracuse University Mary Ann Shaw Center for Public and Community Service “2014 Community Partner”. Syracuse University’s long-standing partnership with UWCNY inspired SU students in 1992 to lobby for a student recognition event on campus. Modeling similar United Way events, the Chancellor’s Award for Public Engagement and Scholarship (CAPES) was born. Syracuse University partners with the UWCNY in numerous ways, including special dome events such as the “Success by 6 Book Drive” and “Dollar Day at the Dome.” Students help plan these events and participate as volunteers. Syracuse University students are also involved with other Success By 6 events (shown below) and participate in multiple research projects with UWCNY throughout the year. Internship placements and support of the UWCNY loaned executive program, participation in the annual Campaign Kickoff Cook-off, UWCNY board and committees including SB6 policy council are great examples of the Syracuse University – UWCNY strong, multi- faceted bond. United Way of CNY looks forward to continued opportunities with Syracuse University!
