    Veronica Ung-Kono Fighting Poverty from Afar

    Veronica Ung-Kono ’18 spent the summer advocating for the world’s poor from her desktop. A political science and communications major with a pre-law concentration, she interned with The Borgen Project, a nonprofit organization that lobbies for quality education, access to proper health care, and enough food for the world’s poor.

    Jason Luscier Le Moyne's Bird Man

    Jason Luscier, assistant professor of biological sciences, begins his workday early – around 4:30 a.m. He is up with the birds – literally. Luscier regularly traverses the City of Syracuse as the sun is beginning to rise, exploring the parks, commercial regions and residential neighborhoods, his eyes and ears sharply attuned to the avian life around him.

    Tiny Home for Good A Place of Their Own

    A place of their own – for homeless men and women in Syracuse, there is no greater wish than that. Yet for too many a home of their own seems hopelessly out of reach. Andrew Lunetta ’12 is expending all of his energy to make that dream a reality.
