The annual Service of Commemoration seeks to honor Syracuse University students, faculty, staff, retirees, trustees, and also State University of New York (SUNY) College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) students who have recently passed away. This program provides an opportunity for our campus community to pause, reflect, acknowledge all that has been lost, and be placed on a collective path for shared renewal.

The 2024 Service of Commemoration will be held in Hendricks Chapel on March 19th at 4:00 p.m. In addition to our in-person program, the service will also be broadcast live and virtually via YouTube. If you plan to participate virtually, please visit to access the live broadcast. Those unable to attend the live broadcast can later access the taped recording via the same YouTube link.
