Description/Abstract

On the surface, it would be hard to find institutions situated more differently than Syracuse University in upstate New York and the University of Texas in the Rio Grande Valley. We are a private university in a post-industrial Rust Belt city. For nearly 60 years, residents have been leaving the city for the hilly lake country around us, ignoring both the city’s attractions and the drawbacks of commuting by car through 170 inches of snow a year. Even the SU campus, which sits on a hill close to downtown, was cut off from the city center by the construction of Interstate 81.
