Veteran Legacy Fund

Veteran Legacy Fund logoToday’s veterans and military-connected students come to Syracuse University for the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of those generations of Orange veterans who have called SU home.

Chancellor Kent Syverud has made a commitment to not only honor our historical legacy of support to veterans and military-connected students, but add a new chapter to the Syracuse University story of service to those who have worn the cloth of the nation.

Many times throughout America’s history, our young servicemen and women have answered the call of duty. The time has now come to answer Chancellor Syverud’s call.

The Office of Veteran and Military Affairs at Syracuse University has established the Veteran Legacy Fund (VLF) to support all programs that benefit our veteran and military-connected students on campus.
