Syracuse University Libraries and Falk College have partnered to produce a vibrant audio documentary featuring Professor Emerita Sarah “Sally” Short.
Syracuse University Libraries and Falk College have partnered to produce Dr. Sarah Short: Long on Life, a vibrant new audio documentary featuring Professor Emerita Sarah “Sally” Short, an academic trailblazer in nutrition and proud Orange alumna whose dedicated teaching career at Syracuse University spans more than 50 years. Dr. Sarah Short: Long on Life was made possible by the production talents of the team of Libraries staff and students who produce the SU Libraries’ SoundBeat, a daily, 90-second radio show highlighting SU’s world class music collections.
Featuring interviews with Sally, her family, and former students, this freely available online presentation explores her life, including her eccentric teaching that sparked student enthusiasm for the sciences and captured the attention of The New York Times, who in 1975 called her teaching methods “outlandish.”
Join Sally and pave the way for students
