A Gala Event for UC’s Centennial

UC 100 Gala

Photos of Gala Recipients100 years of changing lives is worth celebrating, and we plan to do that in a big way at University College’s 100th Anniversary Gala. The event will take place on Saturday, October 6, 2018 in Schine Student Center, 303 University Place. It will feature a cocktail hour, followed by dinner and dancing to the music of Prime Time.

Proceeds from the Gala will benefit the University College Centennial Fund, which will help UC provide financial aid for tuition, fees, class materials, computers and childcare to support UC students into the future.

A highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the University College Lifetime Ambassador Award, which will be given to three very deserving recipients in recognition of their commitment and dedication to lifelong learning. Alexander N. Charters, a world-renowned champion of adult education and dean of University College from 1952 to 1964, will be honored posthumously. Bea González, who served as dean of University College from 2007-2017 and has a long history of professional, political, and community service, is now Syracuse University’s Vice President for Community Engagement. Cindylou Gromny, a beloved administrative assistant at UC, will also be honored posthumously. She spent her entire working life at UC—44 years.
