Henderson-Harr Ed

Campus Champion

Assistant Vice President Amy Henderson-Harr combines her extensive experience in sponsored research with an unflappable determination to enhance the educational opportunities for all SUNY Cortland faculty and students. She works closely with our faculty members to identify independent sources of funding that will showcase their talents and concepts for educational innovation. Last year, for example, she helped the College to secure more than $5 million of which $3.2 was expended. Already during the current academic year, she has assisted in garnering an additional $1 million in research funds.
