Going to college is an adjustment for any student, especially for a student that is moving to a new country. If you are coming to Syracuse as an international graduate or undergraduate student, here are some things that other international students wish they knew before they came to Syracuse University.

OMA helps students in growing into individuals willing to take a proactive stance against all forms of oppression. Our staff offers one-on-one support for students of color at Syracuse University and strives to reach out to and support students who are struggling with mixed messages they may receive in dealing with the issues of race and diversity in their own communities.
The Office of Equal Opportunity, Inclusion, & Resolution Services

EOIRS works across all divisions of the University to build community and cultivate a culture of respect, safety, and equity that ensures legal compliance but also goes beyond it, in accordance with the University’s values. Its staff is dedicated to assisting those with concerns or complaints, and to educating members of the University community about their rights and responsibilities with regard to how they are treated and treat others.
