Our Mission


To inform and inspire.

The Strathmore Speaker Series is a platform for recognized local experts from a wide range of disciplines to share the power of their ideas with the community through intellectually stimulating, thought provoking, and enlightening conversations on the arts, literature, politics, history, the environment, science, philosophy, theology, and business.

Additionally, we hope to promote the city and parks of Syracuse and most specifically, the Strathmore neighborhood and Onondaga Park – in a dynamic and positive manner so that lecture series visitors see the Strathmore neighborhood and City of Syracuse as an exciting and desirable community in which to live, work, and raise a family.
