Connecting the Campus

...where the President knows your name.

We feel fortunate to have a President who often knows you by name and is frequently seen attending various student events and diversity trainings. Whether you are students, faculty, or staff we want this to be a welcoming place for you.

Unity Award Nomination

The Unity Award was established in 2010 by then Interim Director of Multicultural Life Noelle Chaddock Paley and co-sponsor Affirmative Action Officer Wendy Cranmer. The intention of the award was to recognize people in the SUNY Cortland community who were working toward equity and inclusion. Dean Andrea LaChance, School of Education; Dean Bruce Mattingly, School of Arts and Sciences; and Dean John Cottone, School of Professional Studies took on Unity as their annual event with the intention of institutionalizing the celebration and thus the good work of the SUNY Cortland Community. Recipients of the Unity Award are individuals that advocate for diversity and social change for all students, faculty and staff regardless of their socio-racial locations and identities. Recipients are selfless people who go above and beyond to make SUNY Cortland a welcoming, inclusive, and safe place for all community members. We thank them for their dedication and commitment to making SUNY Cortland a better place.
