STOP Bias is an educational campaign dedicated to preventing acts of bias on the SU campus.
The BE Wise campaign strives to generate awareness of alcohol poisoning, how to avoid it, its signs, and how to respond to it.
Syracuse University has established a Disability Cultural Center (DCC) to coordinate campus-wide social, educational, and cultural activities on disability issues for students, faculty, staff, and community members with and without disabilities.
The Disability Cultural Center is the first of its kind in the United States to be housed within a Division of Student Affairs, rather than a disability services office; it is also the first to be run by a full-time professional staff member. SU's Disability Cultural Center has a purpose that is parallel to other cultural centers on campus, including the LGBT Resource Center, the Lillian and Emmanuel Slutzker Center for International Services, and the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
Please visit and feel free to post on our Tumblr blog!

We in the Disability Cultural Center (DCC) welcome all transfer students to Syracuse University, and invite you to participate in DCC programs and activities, all of which are meant to celebrate a community that fosters pride in one’s identity and creates a culture of inclusion. We seek to build a campus community that values everyone’s capabilities, and recognizes that all individuals have the potential to excel and contribute to the academic and social environment at Syracuse University and beyond.
We encourage you to browse our website and to visit us in room 105 of the Hoople Building. Due to limited staffing, it is best to make an appointment. Feel free to call us at: 315-443-4486. Thanks! We look forward to meeting you! Questions, in the meantime? Please email us!

SUNY Upstate Medical University Campus Room 1507/1508 Setnor Academic Building 766 Irving Ave.
How can health care practitioners and bioethicists benefit from the views of disability scholars and activists? This seminar takes a disability rights perspective on now-famous end of life cases and current debates about the end of life and assisted suicide. Dr. Adrienne Asch is the Edward and Robin Milstein Professor of Bioethics and Director of the Center for Ethics at Yeshiva University and professor of epidemiology and population health and family and social medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. Her work focuses on the ethical, political, psychological, and social implications of human reproduction and the family. She has authored numerous articles and book chapters and is the co-editor of Prenatal Testing and Disability Rights and The Double-Edged Helix: Social Implications of Genetics in a Diverse Society. Co-sponsors: Syracuse University's Disability Cultural Center & Renee Crown University Honors Program Access: The presentation space is wheelchair accessible (wheelchair-accessible bathroom on the same floor). ASL interpreter provided. Consortium for Culture and Medicine Faculty Seminars: The Consortium for Culture and Medicine is a collaboration among Le Moyne College, Syracuse University, and Upstate Medical University that brings together faculty and students from disparate fields to teach and conduct research on social, ethical, and cultural aspects of health care. The Consortium's Seminar Series encourages faculty, students, and interested community members to speak across disciplinary boundaries on urgent topics that interweave discourses and professional and social perspectives. Location: The Setnor Academic Building is an extension on the north side of Weiskotten Hall, 766 Irving Ave., at the intersection of Waverly and Irving, on the west side of Irving, just north of Waverly. Parking: There is limited metered parking on Elizabeth Blackwell Street near University Hospital, and along Irving Avenue near Weiskotten and Silverman Halls and the Health Sciences Library.
