Who We Are
The WellsLink Leadership Program is an academic excellence and leadership program for first-year students who are not sponsored by any of the university's state or federally-funded programs.
Through a series of structured academic, social and cultural enrichment activities, WellsLink scholars are trained for exceptional success and leadership at Syracuse University. The goal of the program is to give students an "edge" in college.
Jeff Chang was the 2102 keynote speaker. Chang is the Executive Director of the Institute for Diversity in the Arts at Stanford University. A radical historian with both street cred and academic chops, Chang talks about multiculturalism, race relations, student activism, political engagement, the state of the arts, and the politics of abandonment. His first book, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation, won the American Book Award, and is only ostensibly about hip-hop; it’s really a cultural history. His next book, Who We Be: The Colorization of America, examines the cultural transformation of the U.S. over the last three decades.
