Current VPA News

Dear VPA Community,

As a follow-up to my letter to the VPA community last Friday, we have scheduled a listening forum for students only to express their concerns about the culture within VPA and Syracuse University on Thursday, April 26, from 4-5:30 p.m. in Hendricks Chapel. This forum will be the first in a series of initiatives to better understand and act upon student concerns.

The session will be moderated by Dr. Elisa Dekaney, associate professor of music education.

As it is our goal to empower our students to have the freedom to have candid and often difficult dialogue, photography and videography will not be permitted, and the session will be closed to the media.
