Renée Crown ’50, H’84 and Lester Crown at the unveiling of the Schine Student Center renovation plans in 2019.

Renée Schine Crown ’50, H’84 is a longtime advocate for ensuring that every Syracuse University student has the opportunity for an exceptional experience that defines what it means to be Orange. That vision has guided her work on the Board of Trustees, its Executive Committee and University Relations Committee, and on the College of Arts and Sciences Board of Visitors. She was co-chair of leadership gifts for the Campaign for Syracuse and served on the $300 million Commitment to Learning Campaign Executive Committee. She has received the College of Arts and Sciences Distinguished Alumnae Award, the George Arents Pioneer Medal, the Chancellor’s Medal for Outstanding Achievement, and an honorary doctorate. Following her retirement from the Board and—thanks in part to the tremendous generosity of Crown and her husband, Lester—the Honors Program was named the “Renée Crown University Honors Program” in recognition of her service to and support of the University.
