About the Near Westside Initiative

The Syracuse Art, Literacy, Technology (SALT) District of the Near Westside is directed by the Near Westside Initiative Inc. (NWSI), a not-for-profit organization operated out of the Office of Community Engagement and Economic Development at Syracuse University that leverages the resources of SU, the state, the city, private foundations, businesses, not-for-profit corporations, and neighborhood residents to achieve its goals.  A creative community is converging here to foster economic development, jobs and stability for the neighborhood, and rich academic experiences for SU students. Within this neighborhood, the premise that art and culture can unite to create a revitalized community is being tested and is proving to be true.
