Shades of Orange

Shades of Orange banner over Syracuse University campus at sunsetDear Friends,

The Office of Multicultural Advancement is pleased to present our e-newsletter, Shades of Orange, where we share with you the work being done on your behalf.

During our alumni listening tour we heard you and one of the things you made clear is that you wanted us to deliver more information on underrepresented alumni and student achievement. To that end, we have implemented a communication strategy specifically for our community of color.

We are bringing on a digital specialist and refreshing our platforms to serve you better. We are constantly working on fresh content for our new website, Shades of Orange, and our social media platforms. You can rest assured we will continue to publish Syracuse Manuscript three times per year, and back issues are archived online for easy reference.

Shades of Orange brings you the latest updates on events, alumni and student spotlights, along with opportunities for you to support our work, which is, of course, to support this community. We hope you are happy with this new effort and that the stories you read will touch and inspire you.

Please feel free to email us with any suggestions or comments at To request back issues of Shades of Orange, contact us; we’ll be happy to send them to you.

Go Orange,

Rachel Vassel ’91, G’21
Associate Vice President
