Team Upstate Committee

The purpose of Team Upstate is to encourage volunteer participation among our students, staff, faculty and retirees. Team Upstate promotes our own sponsored activities, as well as those in our Greater Syracuse community into the communities in which we live in order to promote our quality of life and maintain Upstate Medical University's (UMU) mission, vision, and values among our constituents.
