This year’s office theme is Inspiration, Compassion and Our Shared Humanity. The theme is looking at ways in which SUNY Cortland students can gain the experience they need to be inspired to make a difference in our world through evoking genuine compassion and empathy in understanding our shared humanity. When we recognize our shared humanity, profound connections can be fostered across cultural divides to promote a more inclusive community.
