Campus Champion

Students and their parents who walk into the Judicial Affairs Office in Corey Union first encounter the kind and calm Neeca Root, administrative aide, described as “the ultimate professional.” She schedules hearings for the students accused of violating the College’s Code of Student Conduct and interacts with the volunteer faculty and student justices who must make decisions about violations of College policy. Always seeking to put others at ease, for almost nine years her compassionate manner has encouraged students to consider possible unfortunate turns in their college career as learning experiences toward a more positive life path. A 12-year College employee, Neeca previously served the Career Services, Telecommunications and Registrar’s Offices and served as treasurer of the Civil Service Employee’s Association (CSEA) from 2006-10.
