Historical Note

In 1988 the Division of International Programs Abroad (DIPA) was under the Office of Undergraduate Studies. When Pan Am Flight 103 was blown up over Lockerbie Scotland while carrying 35 students enrolled in Syracuse University's DIPA program the Office of Undergraduate Studies was heavily involved in the campus response. This department handled phone calls to families of the victims immediately following the tragedy and participated in campaigns to build the Place of Remembrance, to establish the Remembrance and Lockerbie Scholarships and other Pan Am 103 initiatives on campus.
