Syracuse University’s 150th anniversary is an opportunity to honor our history, reflect on our values and set a clear path forward. Some of the most important historical aspects of Syracuse University is the commitment to veterans. It goes back at least as far as World War I, when Syracuse University established a Students Army Training Corps (SATC). During WWII, Syracuse University hosted a number of defense training programs, including the Civilian Pilot Training program, the Cadet Nurse Corps, War Service College, and Army Specialized Training Program. Chancellor Tolly was instrumental in drafting the original G.I. Bill which is still imperative today in supporting veterans with benefits including achieving higher education.

As we mark this historic milestone, we look back at our fearless firsts that changed the Syracuse community, our region and the world.

See the full timeline of Syracuse University’s continued commitment to the veteran and military related community.
