Growing Where We Are Planted

Headquartered in Syracuse, NY, DeweyIS is situated in the shadow of Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and the Onondaga Nation, both of which have left indelible marks on the firm's commitment to operating with integrity and strong sense of civic duty.

Promise to the Seventh Generation

Our consulting teams embrace the Great Law of the Iroquois and the Seventh Generation Principle, "In every deliberation, we must consider the impact on the seventh generation... even if it requires having skin as thick as the bark of a pine.”  We holds ourselves to high ethical standards both socially and environmentally. We cultivate community and client relationships with integrity, and use energy, water, and natural resources as careful stewards. By reusing, recycling, and embracing sustainable practices, we honor the generations that follow us
