ON THE COVER On April 8, students, faculty, staff and community members filled the Quad and the lawn in front of the Hall of Languages to view the total solar eclipse. Despite partly cloudy conditions, it was an unforgettable time of unity, when people from across campus came together in awe and excitement.

DEAR ALUMNI AND FRIENDS, W hat a momentous semester! From natural phenomena to our College’s future, we have had much to celebrate at Arts and Sciences. First, experiencing the totality of a solar eclipse April 8 on the Quad with thousands of students and community members was an awe-inspiring thrill. Did you know there won’t be a total solar eclipse in the contiguous U.S. for another 20 years, and that the Syracuse area’s last total solar eclipse was in 1925? Reflecting on the nearly 100 years separating the two occurrences, I am struck by the enduring links that connect A&S alumni, faculty and students across generations, geography and experience. Whether discovering new perspectives on Nature in the Syracuse University Art Museum’s collections, or delving deep underground to understand the subatomic, we--like our forebears of 100 years ago--are all driven by a quest for knowledge and a thirst for human connection. Looking ahead, the College will soon be implementing its new Academic Strategic Plan. It adds to our momentum for the next five years through new areas of distinctive excellence. I look forward to sharing more in our next magazine. Meantime, this edition will give you a glimpse into the many ways A&S fosters connection with the world around us. I am inspired by these examples and hope they inspire you, too, to reach out and reengage with campus, your community and fellow alumni.

“We are all driven by a quest for knowledge and a thirst for human connection.”

E-Museums Up Close D oes the word “museum” conjure visions of hushed rooms, locked exhibit cases or dusty relics? While that may have been a common experience in decades past, today’s art institutions are finding innovative, accessible and meaningful ways to connect people with their collections. In so doing, they’re helping people see the world differently through objects and works from different eras, media and cultures. A&S faculty are working closely with the SU Art Museum to use its expansive collections to create timely, hands-on teaching and learning resources for students and faculty. Beyond appreciation for aesthetics, these resources present brand-new perspectives on long-standing questions. Seeing that the museum’s thousands of artworks and objects can spark new lines of research and collaboration, Mike Goode, professor of English and William P. Tolley Distinguished Teaching Professor in the Humanities, and Kate Holohan, curator of education and academic outreach at the SU Art Museum, recently worked with a team of students to create 15 “e-museums” as part of the Art, Ecology and Climate Project, the first of its kind at the University.

What is An E-Museum? An e-museum is a digital collection of objects and artworks published online. The Art, Ecology and Climate Project includes nearly 1,000 digitized objects from the SU Art Museum’s collections, grouped into 15 themed e-museums on the museum website. Each grouping includes an introduction, teaching guides and a digital gallery of related objects and artworks. This allows students to compare many different items and analyze how perspectives on a given topic have changed through the years. To accomplish this ambitious task, Goode and Holohan worked with a student team which included Jeffrey Adams, a Ph.D. candidate in English, Abigail Greenfield ’25, a history and political philosophy major and art history minor, and Jeanelle Cho ’24, an architecture major and art history minor. Together, the team combed through nearly 30,000 of the art museum’s 45,000 objects. Then, the students researched the artworks and helped write the teaching guides.

Deep Dives into Art Among the works Greenfield studied was a series of prints by Robert Rauschenberg depicting mass-produced feed bags made by a national pet and animal food retailer. Greenfield, whose work on the project was supported by the SOURCE, a University initiative which funds undergraduate research, says, “I was really fascinated by the idea of using art to talk about ecology because I’m interested in climate change and the impact that it’s having on our world.” One of the works that Adams, the Ph.D. candidate, researched for the “Wilderness and Wildness” e-museum and accompanying teaching guide was “Exhausted renegade elephant, Woodland Washington,” (1979), a photograph by Joel Sternfeld. It depicts a tranquilized elephant that escaped from a local zoo (see inset, facing page). In the teaching guide, users can compare that photo with a grouping of images of elephants (opposite) and explore larger questions about animal captivity and the relationship between humans and animals. “Learning how to work in a museum has been pretty rewarding and given me practical experience,” says Adams, whose work was funded by Syracuse University’s Graduate School. Jeanelle Cho, another team member whose participation was supported by the SOURCE, says having the opportunity to research the historical and ecological significance of artworks was fulfilling. “Helping to create these learning resources, which encourage students to go beyond what they might see initially and interpret an artwork from different angles, was very rewarding,” says Cho.

“While one set of art exhibits is not going to [change the future] by themselves,

they can be part of something bigger,” says Goode.


Syracuse University | Arts & Sciences

Part of Something Bigger For Goode, the idea for this project took shape when he became Tolley professor, a role designed to support teaching excellence. He wanted to focus on how the humanities could help people to learn about ecology and climate. “The science on things like climate change is fairly well decided,” says Goode. “If we’re going to change the future, that really depends on culture change as much as it depends upon policy change, and while one set of art exhibits is not going to do that by themselves, they can be part of something bigger.” For Holohan, this project marks an important first for the museum in utilizing their collections beyond the footprint of campus. She points out that the virtual teaching guides allow everyone to access these resources from anywhere. “This was the first of this type [of project] where we dug deep into the museum’s collection, assembled a research team and created the e-museum and teaching guides,” says Holohan. It likely won’t be the last.

Literary Profiles of Local People

In Introduction to Creative Non-Fiction, Writing and Translating Cultures , taught by Sevinç Türkkan, assistant teaching professor of writing and rhetoric, students develop more than the craft of writing— they develop meaningful friendships and deeper understanding of others’ lived experiences. This class brought together Syracuse University writing students and Onondaga Community College (OCC) students learning English as a second language. For one assignment, the OCC students selected, researched and translated a text of cultural significance in their native language that was not available in English. Syracuse students worked closely with them, offering feedback to help preserve the cross-cultural and cross-linguistic aspects of their English translations. cultures in a course that swaps translation and interview projects for traditional lectures. S tudents hone their writing skills and connect across

English Translation by Yeohyun Yoon

Sky, Wind, Star and Poetry

서 시

With respect to the sky,

죽는 날까지 하늘을 우러러

한 점 부끄럼이 없기를 ,

I want to relinquish self-doubt.

When the wind gently blows the leaves, though,

잎새에 이는 바람에도

나는 괴로워했다 .

Is when I feel most sorrowful.

별을 노래하는 마음으로

My heart yearns for the stars.

My heart goes to the victims.

모든 죽어 가는 것을 사랑해야지

And the road assigned to me,

그리고 나한테 주어진 길을

걸어가야겠다 . 오늘 밤에도 별이 바람에 스치운다 .

I will take again tonight,

The stars appear and the wind blows.

The Syracuse students also interviewed their OCC partners on topics including the refugee experience, life as an immigrant in Syracuse, and linguistic, cultural and economic challenges. The interviews became the basis of their final class projects: literary profiles about their partner. The profile written by Sunny Suaya ’27 highlighted the bond she had with her partner, Yeohyun Yoon. Born in South Korea, Yoon took the class at OCC with his wife so they could improve their English skills. He chose to translate the Korean poem, “Sky, Wind, Star and Poetry,” written by the poet Yoon Dong-ju during the Korean independence movement against the Empire of Japan in the early 20th century. In her literary profile, Suaya explained the significance of Dong-ju’s work, which she learned about through her conversations with Yeohyun, and reflected on their newly formed relationship: “Yoon Dong-ju expressed the agony of a person during the colonial era in beautiful poetry and is

considered a resistance poet who gave a ray of hope to the Korean people . . . As I ended my interview with Yeohyun, I felt our connection. We both were excited to be new friends.” This class was part of the new Engaged Courses initiative, a signature program in A&S which supports faculty seeking a community engagement component to their curriculum. For Türkkan, seeing these bonds form in class is one of the more fulfilling experiences as an educator. “This type of personal cross-cultural exchange, where students bring their strengths to the table while at the same time recognizing that their community partner has complementary strengths, is a key part of being an effective global citizen,” she says. The Engaged Courses initiative includes a class in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, where students apply knowledge from their academic coursework into clinical practice in the community.

Mining for Neutrino Answers The excavation of three massive caverns is a milestone in the quest to understand these mysterious particles.

Syracuse University | Arts & Sciences

Just as with the search for gravitational waves, work in which Syracuse University astrophysicists played a key role in 2017, A&S researchers are now working to understand the origins of the Universe through the behavior of elusive subatomic particles called neutrinos. At the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), a team of more than 1,400 scientists from over 200 institutions in 36 countries—including faculty and students from the A&S Department of Physics led by professors Mitch Soderberg and Denver Whittington—have been working together over the past decade to explore these particles’ deepest secrets. Understanding how neutrinos — one of the most fundamental, abundant and lightest subatomic particles with mass — interact may be the key to determining why our Universe exists. And now, a major milestone has been reached as excavation workers finished carving out the future home of the four gigantic particle detectors in Lead, South Dakota. Seven-story detectors will be installed a mile below ground and shoot a high-energy beam 800 miles through the Earth. Once online in the coming years, the detectors will record rare neutrino interactions for further analysis. Here’s how it will work: Protons will be sent through a chain of particle accelerators and then into a cylindrical rod of graphite at Fermilab, creating the stream of neutrinos. Those neutrinos will then pass through a detector at Fermilab and continue 800 miles to detectors at the mile-deep Sanford Underground Research Facility, allowing researchers to make definitive determinations of neutrino properties. A&S team members were involved in the development and testing of different detector components as well as prototyping. Syracuse researchers helped develop the massive detectors in South Dakota that will capture the neutrino beam emanating from Illinois. I t takes a really big project to answer questions about some of the Universe’s tiniest particles.

Did you know? Neutrinos rarely interact with anything. They will easily pass straight through the Earth on their high energy “journey” from Illinois to South Dakota.

Helping International Students Thrive F ar from home, sometimes facing language or cultural barriers, international students can find it challenging to find their comfort zone on an American campus. But at the A&S | Maxwell, there is a staff member dedicated to their success.

Ling Gao LeBeau, associate director of international student success at A&S | Maxwell—a unique position in American higher education—is focused solely on those students’ needs, preparing them for employment or graduate school through a variety of programs and initiatives. There are about 1,000 international students, from more than 50 countries, at the two colleges.

Efforts are paying off. More international students are returning their second year, and the program has been nationally recognized with a prestigious 2024 Senator Paul Simon Spotlight Award for Campus Internationalization by NAFSA: Association of International Educators.

We recently spoke with LeBeau about the program.

Q: Can you tell us a little about yourself and the experience you bring to this position? A: Before coming to Syracuse, I was at Western Carolina University and Indiana University. I was overseeing entire campus’ international initiatives: programs for scholars, study abroad, faculty development. Here my focus is more narrow. Before [I got here], there was never a position like this at Syracuse—or anywhere in the U.S., focusing on international students’ academic success. Q: And why is that important? A: The United States is the most popular destination for “global mobility” students. There are about 1 million international students studying in the U.S.—[out of about] 5.6 million in the world. North America does a lot for international students, but it’s a heavy focus on getting and maintaining visas, and on language training and social opportunities. The academic and career piece has absolutely been overlooked. Before I took this position, I realized this was the gap. When I saw the posting, I thought, this is interesting, this is new. I want to make a difference. Q: And what has been key to making a difference? A : We have an “international student success model” that we created from scratch. There are five pillars to support this model: peer mentors, pre-arrival academic coaching, advisor training, academic intervention and communication. Q: The Peer Mentor Program is one of the most vital and popular of the pillars. How does it work? A : We assign a mentor to every international student. Mentors are upper class students, both American and international. We [provide] a syllabus and guidelines; we train and monitor them carefully. Results show that for the students who are actively engaged with mentorship, their academic performance is much better, and their GPAs are higher.

“You can’t just say ‘Go take a class,’” LeBeau notes. “They need the context of what to expect in an American university.”


Syracuse University | Arts & Sciences

Q: Beyond mentorship, you offer academic support. Why is this important? A : You can’t just say [to a student coming from overseas], “Go take a class.” They need the context of what to expect in an American university. I created a non credit course to help them understand how the university system works and the people they will work with. I also

host weekly online meetings during the summer. Anyone— students and parents—can join and ask questions.

If we notice an outstanding, high-achieving student, we reach out and ask if they’re interested in doing research, for instance. If a student is on academic probation, on the other hand, we reach out to ask how we can help. Q: Aside from reaching out one-on-one, what is your approach to keeping lines of communication open with international students? A : This is key. It’s about developing a relationship with them. Every Monday, I send a succinct international student e-newsletter with just a list of things they need to know that week. Also, we do Instagram, WhatsApp and WeChat. We use social media to communicate with parents as well. They are thousands of miles away but they are the students’ number one supporters. I send them a monthly newsletter, and also host an online meeting once a month to answer any questions.

A Sisterhood of Science Professor links three generations of female researchers in Earth and environmental sciences.

A&S Professor Linda Ivany (center) at the AWG award ceremony with former members of her lab (from left) Marie Jimenez G’18, Lindsay Moon ’19, Emily Judd G’20 and Christy Visaggi G’04.

When Professor Cathryn R. Newton joined what became the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES) in 1983, the field—like much of science—was dominated by men. An expert

Among Newton’s early advisees was an undergraduate student named Linda Ivany ’88. Ivany, now a professor at Syracuse herself, majored in geology and minored in zoology (now biology). She graduated at the top of her class and was named a Syracuse University Scholar, an honor conferred to high-achieving seniors. “As an undergraduate at SU, I didn’t realize how rare and special it was to have a woman advisor—and a formidable one—in the geosciences at that time. Once I got to graduate school, it became abundantly clear that there were very few senior women in the field, and that they generally didn’t get the recognition they deserved for the work they were doing,” Ivany says. After receiving a master’s degree from the University of Florida Gainesville and a Ph.D. from Harvard University, Ivany returned to Syracuse University as a professor, following in the footsteps of Newton, her mentor. That year, in 2000, she and Professor Suzanne Baldwin became the second and third women to be hired into the faculty of EES at Syracuse.

A respected researcher, professor and advisor, Ivany has received numerous honors, including the University’s Excellence in Graduate Education Faculty Recognition Award in 2019. For her innovative work in the field and the classroom, Ivany was also featured in an exhibit titled “Daring to Dig” at the Museum of the Earth in Ithaca, NY, in 2021. The gallery highlighted the career challenges and triumphs of female paleontologists. Ivany, who has served as advisor to Ph.D., master’s and undergraduate students at Syracuse, recently received an Outstanding Educator Award from the Association for Women Geoscientists (AWG). “An award for outstanding educator is especially meaningful to me,” says Ivany, “because it feels like I’ve somehow been successful at giving back, at honoring the educators and mentors who were so influential for me when I was a student.” Just as she drew inspiration from Cathryn Newton, Ivany has guided the next generation of paleontologists. Four of her former students attended

in the study of modern and ancient biodiversity, Newton’s work catalyzed researchers to examine the fossil record for clues about the catastrophic causes of mass extinctions. Newton went on to become the first woman to be named chair of the department (1993 to 2000) and was the first woman to serve as dean of A&S (2000 to 2008). Throughout her career, she has been an ardent advocate and mentor to women in the sciences, co-founding the University’s Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) program.

Visaggi earned an M.S. at Syracuse in 2004 and is now a principal senior lecturer and undergraduate director in the Department of Geosciences at Georgia State University in Atlanta. After graduating from Syracuse, Visaggi received a Ph.D. in marine biology from the University of North Carolina Wilmington and has served on the faculty at Georgia State for the past decade. Her research uses the fossil record and modern marine habitats to better understand ecological interactions. She is also deeply committed to enhancing geoscience education, both in K-12 and higher education. Visaggi attributes much of her passion as a researcher and educator to Ivany, who always urged her to push forward through challenges and to seek answers to complex questions. “Professor Ivany always supported me and my goals, and encouraged me to do more and pursue new opportunities, including after I graduated,” says Visaggi. For Visaggi, Syracuse University holds a special significance. Professionally, she gained invaluable experience learning how to prepare her work for publication and write successful grant proposals. Personally, she gained a special

relationship. Her geology officemate at Syracuse, a fellow graduate student at the time, is now her husband. “We have two kids and enjoy sharing our love of the natural world with them. As you can see, all aspects of my journey as a person and professional were greatly influenced by my time at SU and the mentorship of Professor Ivany,” says Visaggi.

The Great American Eclipse On April 8, the Syracuse University campus had the rare treat of being in the path of a total solar eclipse. The last time Syracuse was close to the zone of totality was nearly a century ago on January 24, 1925, when it passed just south of the city.

Check out the sights and sounds of the eclipse on the Quad, plus some fun trivia in this video.

Always up for a photo, Otto demonstrates proper eye wear for safe viewing of the eclipse.

Excitement grows along with the crowds as totality begins filling in, with complete darkness starting at 3:23 p.m. and lasting 1 minute and 24 seconds.
