Marcus Lane Jr.

A rising junior studying Policy and Sociology in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. He is also a member of the Renée Crown University Honors Program. As an aspiring public servant, Lane’s focal academic and professional interests have been education, housing, and incarceration. In his first-year at Syracuse University, he co-founded a social justice council for high school youth and managing a youth entrepreneurial farm stand in the Southwest community of Syracuse.

He began interning at the Central New York chapter of the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) in his first-year, too. Since then, he has organized events on mass criminalization, housing segregation, and the school-to-prison pipeline on and off campus.

Lane has assisted in research efforts, raising awareness and lobbying elected officials on the aforementioned social problems and more. He also started a student chapter of the NYCLU on Syracuse University’s campus. Lane’s other student involvement include being elected as an assembly representative for Syracuse University’s undergraduate student government. As an elected official, Lane reformed the student government’s by-laws, created the Diversity and Inclusion Affairs Committee, and passed a resolution on making Syracuse University a sanctuary campus. Lane is a resident advisor and writer for The New Narrative and SU Globalist. Lastly, this past summer, Lane was one of four university students from around the United States who engaged in the prestigious Montgomery Fellowship at the American Bar Foundation in Chicago.

Lane is extremely excited to work with the Partnership for Boys as an intern. He sees it as a natural extension of his previous work and himself. As a male of color, Lane has personally struggled with identity, vulnerability, and social and emotional development. He realizes that self-discovery is an arduous and ongoing process, and wishes he had engagement and support network like the one Partnership for Boys seeks to provide. As a result, he is eager to contribute to developing driven, engaging, resilient, and responsible boys and young men.
