The news release didn’t provide specific figures on the number of current division employees or how many positions the school will eliminate and create in the reorganization.

The effort is aimed at “better aligning its resources and operation with the university’s vision and mission,” Syracuse said.

In making the announcement Thursday, Syracuse said that employees “whose positions exist today but do not under the new structure” were notified this week. The school is providing each of those employees “services to support them in identifying and transitioning to the appropriate role.”

All employees have an opportunity to apply for positions within the new structure, the school said. Royer anticipates completing most internal staffing changes by the end of June.

The newly restructured division “places a greater emphasis on advancing” Syracuse University’s academic, research and “student experience” goals, according to the news release.

“Syracuse University has a lot of great stories to tell about its academics, its research and, most importantly, its people,” Dara Royer, senior vice president and chief communications officer at Syracuse University, said in the news release. “The field of marketing and communications is evolving rapidly and we need to evolve with it in order to move the University forward in support of our students, faculty, staff and alumni.”
