Syracuse University says no layoffs planned elsewhere on campus after marketing-unit reorganization

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — No layoffs are planned in other parts of Syracuse University this year following the reorganization of the school’s marketing and communication division. That’s according to Dara Royer, senior VP and chief communications officer at Syracuse University.

Five employees weren’t offered new positions in the reorganization of the marketing unit.

Royer’s comment followed “concerns” she heard about the implications for layoffs elsewhere in the university during the reorganization of the marketing and communications department.

“This concern is unfounded. While there has been restructuring this summer in marketing and communications and in the advising function in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Maxwell School, there are no layoffs planned in other parts of the university this year. Normal performance appraisals of individual staff members are occurring as usual at the end of the fiscal year. But I expect employment at the university will continue to grow in the years ahead,” said Royer.

Marketing unit reorganization

Besides the five employees not offered positions in the marketing-unit reorganization, 31 staff members are remaining in their current roles — 19 were offered new positions, and eight decided not to pursue employment in the restructured division, the school said in a news release posted to its news website on Tuesday.

Syracuse had announced the division’s plans to reorganize in a June 14 news release.

All employees in the division — including those whose positions were eliminated — “had the opportunity to apply for new roles,” Syracuse University said. Now that the internal restructuring is complete, open positions have been posted to SUJobOpps.com, the school added.

The reorganization, which the school says it conducted during the summer months “in an effort to minimize impact on the campus community during the academic year, resulted in a net gain of new positions.”

The division’s restructuring followed “extensive consultation” with the division’s employees, deans, faculty, staff and alumni to “determine how best to align marketing and communications functions with university goals.”

SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY RENEWS CONTRACT OF CHANCELLOR SYVERUD

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Syracuse University’s board of trustees announced it has renewed and extended the contract of Chancellor Kent Syverud until 2024.

The contract extension follows an “extensive and inclusive” review process involving deans, faculty, students, staff, alumni, trustees and administrators, Syracuse said in a news release. The University Senate also conducted its own review, which included a survey of university senators and affiliates.

“Dozens” of university stakeholders provided feedback to the board and, separately, to the University Senate about the university’s performance under Syverud’s leadership over the last four years. That process continued between March and October of last year.

In addition to the review reports, the board considered its interactions with the chancellor; the school’s achievements under Syverud’s leadership over the last four years; his capabilities, his character and Syracuse’s “defined institutional priorities.”

First four years

Syracuse University appointed Syverud as its 12th chancellor after his predecessor, Nancy Cantor, departed in 2013 for a similar role at Rutgers University’s Newark campus.

The school made plenty of headlines during Syverud’s first four years in the top leadership role.

He guided the school through the NCAA’s March 2015 announcement of sanctions against the men’s basketball program that included a five-year probation, scholarship losses, financial penalties, and a suspension of head coach Jim Boeheim for nine ACC games. An NCAA appeals committee later upheld that suspension but said it could begin before the start of ACC competition.

Syracuse University in May 2016 announced plans to replace the “aging” Carrier Dome roof with a new fixed roof. It’s part of an estimated $255 million campus-improvement project that Syracuse is calling the “west campus project.” The university’s board of trustees had “advanced” the project as part of what Syracuse is dubbing the “campus framework.” Two years later, the university also announced that a new fixed roof and the installation of air conditioning would be part of the upcoming $118 million renovation project at the Carrier Dome.

Syracuse also formally opened the College of Law’s Dineen Hall in September 2014 and has started construction on the upcoming National Veterans Resource Center.

Syverud’s tenure has also included two changes in the leadership of Syracuse athletics. Not long after the NCAA announced the sanctions, Daryl Gross stepped down as director of athletics. In June of that same year, Syracuse introduced Mark Coyle as Gross’s successor in that role. After Coyle abruptly departed the position nearly a year later for a similar job at the University of Minnesota, Syracuse introduced alumnus and former ESPN executive John Wildhack as the school’s new athletics director in July 2016.

Syracuse University trustee Berlin donates $1M to Falk College for sport-analytics initiatives


SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Syracuse University trustee Andrew Berlin has donated $1 million to the school’s David B. Falk College and Human Dynamics for a “number of student-focused initiatives” in sport analytics.


Falk College launched its degree program in sport analytics in 2016, “responding to the sport industry’s need for trained professionals able to process and analyze ever-increasing amounts of information to guide data-driven decision-making,” the school said in a news release.


Berlin, who graduated from Syracuse in 1983, is chairman and CEO of Chicago, Illinois–based Berlin Packaging, a global supplier of glass, plastic and metal containers and closures. He is also described as a “partner owner” of the Chicago Cubs and its minor-league affiliate, the South Bend Cubs, per the release.


“Syracuse University has played a very significant role by providing the foundation for my business success, and this gift is my way of making a commitment to help ensure that students will have the resources to make sport analytics the best program in the country,” Berlin said. “I believe this cutting-edge program — the first of its kind in the country — will shape the direction of the sports industry for years to come.”


The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the job market for various data-analyst disciplines is growing at 27 percent annually, “far exceeding” the national job growth average of 11 percent.

The sport industry is the fifth-largest economic sector in the U.S. economy, generating slightly less than $500 billion in 2014-15, Syracuse said.

About the initiatives


The Berlin donation will provide scholarship and financial assistance to “select” undergraduate sport-analytics students, along with support for faculty research; participation in academic symposiums; and “student-focused,” sport-analytical competitions.


The school will select Berlin scholars, as they’ll be known, based on academic proficiency, research skills, and “experiential engagement.”


In addition, “outstanding” upper-level students interning with professional teams or sport-analytics companies will be eligible for participation as Berlin senior research associates to mentor younger classmates and conduct seminars on analytics techniques. Associates will also support sport-analytics faculty research that may include co-authoring journal articles and presenting research findings at domestic and international sport analytic and economic academic symposiums.


Plans for a lecture series and creation of an on-campus program for high-school students interested in sport analytics are also under development. An annual symposium featuring leading innovators in sport analytics will be hosted across the country, with the inaugural event taking place in Chicago to feature a panel of local industry executives and Syracuse sport-analytics professors. Over time, the symposium will incorporate graduates of the sport-analytics program, including Berlin scholars and Berlin senior research associates.


The future Berlin Sport Analytics Academy at Syracuse University will include guest speakers, projects, lectures, and activities for high-school students. Participants will gain first-hand knowledge presented by sport analytics faculty and students while enhancing their analytical problem-solving and presentational skills.

For those looking to go to sporting or other events at the Carrier Dome...

SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY ANNOUNCES CLEAR-BAG POLICY, WALKTHROUGH METAL DETECTORS AT CARRIER DOME

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Syracuse University plans to implement a new clear-bag policy and install new walkthrough metal detectors in the Carrier Dome.

The effort seeks to “provide a safer environment for the public and to expedite fan entry” into the venue, the school said in a news release issued Thursday.

Walkthrough metal detectors will be in place at all Carrier Dome entry gates beginning with the Orange football game on Sept. 8. Fans will be asked to present cell phones, cameras, and other large metal objects to the Carrier Dome event staff as they approach the front of the line.

Fans will not need to remove keys, loose change, wallet, jackets, or belts.

“We are committed to providing a secure environment for our fans,” Syracuse University Director of Athletics John Wildhack said in the school’s news release. “The new Clear Bag Policy will enable us to deliver a better and quicker experience at the gates and also provide a safer environment. We appreciate our fans’ cooperation.”

Clear-bag policy

The school’s clear-bag policy, which will go into effect with the start of the football season, limits the size and type of bags permitted inside the stadium. Clear bags are “easily searched and reduce faulty bag searches,” which makes bag checks “more efficient and effective.,” the university contended.

The policy is “consistent” with all NFL stadiums and many ACC members, Syracuse said.

Syracuse University will provide an “educational period” for fans to learn about and adjust to the new clear-bag policy. It’ll begin with the first Orange football game on Sept. 8 and continue through the first three home games.

The clear-bag policy will be in effect for all Syracuse University athletics events and specified other special events at the Carrier Dome beginning Oct. 6.

Fans will be able to carry one of the following style and size bag at Carrier Dome gates: Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC (a strong but lightweight plastics) and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12” OR One-gallon, clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).

In addition, small clutch bags for personal items, approximately the size of a hand (4.5” x 6.5”), with or without a handle or strap; diaper bags (with child), and medically necessary items may be carried into the stadium along with one of the clear bag options, “after proper inspection.”

Seat cushions and seat back chairs are permitted, but Syracuse says they can’t have pockets, zippers or be in their own carrying bag.

Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: backpacks, binocular cases, briefcases, camera cases, cinch bags, computer bags, fanny packs, printed pattern plastic bags, tinted plastic bags, oversize totes, mesh bags, large purses, or any bag larger than the permissible size.

Prohibited items must be returned to the owner’s vehicle or discarded.

All season-ticket holders for football, men’s and women’s basketball, and men’s lacrosse will receive one approved clear plastic tote per two tickets. The season ticket holder bags are a partnership with Galaxy Communications. Approved clear tote bags will be available for purchase at all Syracuse University merchandise locations on the Shaw Quad and inside the Carrier Dome, as well as at the SU Bookstore for $3.

“We’ve done a considerable amount of research looking at collegiate, professional sports and other public event venues across the country. Clear bags and walkthrough metal detectors are common safety practices,” Pete Sala, Syracuse VP and chief facilities officer, said in the school’s news release. “We think after a relatively short period of adjustment, Dome visitors will embrace the use of the clear bags. And the metal detectors will be barely more noticeable than walking through a doorway.”

Working personnel, including media, will continue to enter the Carrier Dome through designated gates, where they will be subject to screening and bag inspections already in effect.

Syracuse University unveils changes to the football game day experience


SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Pre-game transportation options, entertainment on the Quad, concessions discounts, and an in-venue show are just some of the game day “enhancements” that Syracuse University football fans will see at the Carrier Dome this season.


The Orange hosts Wagner for its home opener on Saturday, Sept. 8 at 3:30 p.m


“All of these enhancements are in response to fan feedback,” John Wildhack, director of athletics at Syracuse University, said in a news release issued Wednesday. “We want our fans to enjoy their Syracuse Football game day experience from start to finish.”


Getting to the game

Syracuse has instituted some policies that it believes will result in “improved traffic flow.”


For example, the school has established a ride-hailing area for Lyft designated on University Place between Crouse-Hinds Hall and Crouse College for “easy” drop off and pickup.


In addition, game day pre-game shuttle on the North campus will operate starting three hours before kickoff on the north side of campus through Walnut Park, Comstock Ave., and Ostrom Ave. with a drop off on College Place.


Pre-game entertainment

Syracuse will have pre-game activities on the Quad before each of its home football games. The events begin three hours before kickoff and will include the “Pride of the Orange,” the Syracuse University marching band, performing on the stairs of Hendricks Chapel.


It’ll also include concession-style food and beverage options, along with live music and a DJ.


In addition, fans will also be able to watch televisions showing the ESPN College GameDay show and college football games that are already in progress.


Fans will again see and hear the pre-game show for the Syracuse IMG Radio Network, which begins two hours before to kick off, Syracuse said.


Entrance to the game

Syracuse University is using a clear-bag policy and walkthrough metal detectors to “enhance safety and provide faster entry” at all Carrier Dome gates. More details are available at www.cuse.com/clearbag


The school also has mobile-ticket entry for all fans, including Syracuse students, and it’s available on the Syracuse Athletics app or in ‘MyCuse ticket account.


The university also has an “exclusive” Syracuse University student entrance at Gate F at the south east corner of the Carrier Dome on Forestry Drive, which is a change from Gate E.


The school is also allowing students to purchase a limited number of tickets for visiting guests in the student section.


In-stadium specials

Inside the Carrier Dome, fans will see “Syracuse Saturday,” an in-venue show featuring Tenesha Murphy, co-host of Bridge Street on WSYR-TV (NewsChannel 9); James Mungro, a former member of the Syracuse football program; and Lisa Chelenza, who is heard on the morning show on TK99 radio.


The school is offering special discounts at designated concession stands. They include pre-game concessions discounts of 50 percent for all fans beginning when gates open two hours prior to the game until 30 minutes prior to kickoff. Fans will receive a discount voucher upon entry into the Carrier Dome to present at the concession stand for the discount.


The discount is “not applicable to alcoholic beverages.” The discount will end at “published kickoff time.”


The Carrier Dome is also offering Syracuse University and SUNY-ESF students discounts beginning at the 10-minute mark in the 3rd quarter and continuing to the end of the game. Purchases must be made with a SUpercard. It’s not applicable to alcoholic beverages.


More information on Syracuse University football game day activities is available here.

Also...Destiny USA, Syracuse Athletics team up for tourism promotion


SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Destiny USA and Syracuse Athletics on Monday announced a “multi-year strategic tourism partnership designed to drive travel and tourism to Central New York and Onondaga County.”


The partnership involves what the participants contend are “two of the region’s largest travel and tourism destinations — Destiny USA and Syracuse University,” per a Destiny USA news release.


Both organizations say they’re “joining efforts to bring in millions of travelers and tourists from around the world to experience the best of Central New York.”


Under the partnership, Destiny USA’s Embassy Suites hotel becomes the “Official Hotel of Syracuse Athletics” through the 2021 sports season.


The designation seeks to help “enhance the guest experience” for traveling shoppers, Orange fans, alumni and visiting sports teams. It includes “exclusive” ticket bundles; special Destiny USA attraction packages; and game-day amenities like shuttle rides to and from the Carrier Dome for hotel guests.


Their partnership also “enhances” cross-collaborative marketing efforts both on and off the field to “package and market” Syracuse Athletics game-day events with Destiny USA activities. Those include the summer and winter fun pass, Tykes Tuesday events, and holiday shopping.


The new partnership also involves working with Visit Syracuse to sell the Central New York region to outer markets and with travel and tourism partners both in New York, the U.S., Canada, and worldwide.
