The Cornell-Syracuse Sustainable South Asia Initiative will launch its inaugural workshop at Syracuse University. We invite all those in CNY who are interested in any aspect of sustainability in South Asia to attend and help us plan for the future. All are welcome to attend both sessions.

9am - 1pm — Sustainable South Asia Inaugural Workshop
The Sustainable South Asia Initiative aims to integrate discussions of four key pillars of sustainability -- Sociocultural, Economic, Environmental, and Health – around the larger issue of community sustainability in South Asia. Workshop participants will work together to propose ideas for future activities, including speakers, workshops, symposia, and research and curriculum projects.

2:00 - 4:30pm — Humanities Working Group Planning Meeting 
Following a catered lunch, members of the CNY Humanities Corridor Working Group on Sociocultural Sustainability in South Asia will break out to talk about their future plans and programming. 

If you are interested in attending, please email Emera Bridger Wilson ( by February 15, 2019. Please include the area(s) of sustainability that interest you and if you are willing to share those interests in a lightning talk, a 5-7 minute presentation.

The Sustainable South Asia Initiative is a project of the Cornell-Syracuse Consortium on South Asia, funded by the U.S. Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center grant.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
