Jean Brown

Campus Champion

More than 95 percent of SUNY Cortland's incoming students report that they did not share a bedroom at home. Associate Director Jean Brown and the Residence Life and Housing Office staff members accomplish the important job of assigning these students to their "home away from home" on campus with great attention to detail. Jean spends countless hours listening to the concerns of students and their anxious family members. In doing so, she and her staff provide the students with the best possible care while they live on campus.
