Lallas Champion Photoweb

Campus Champion

Jeff Lallas directs his hard-working and dedicated staff on every SUNY Cortland facilities project, large and small, from its inception as an idea, through planning, design, construction and occupancy. Jeff carefully balances the vision of the College with the needs of the faculty, staff and students who will work and study in each building. He ensures that the College’s interests are met in his many interactions with architects, consultants, construction firms and the SUNY Construction Fund.  Jeff’s commitment can be found in the beauty and functionality of our campus facilities. They are the footprints of a campus champion.
