The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

  Issue Number 14 • Monday, April 4, 2011  


Campus Champion

A kind face with a soft, New Jersey accent has served to open the door to diversity-related clubs and activities here for many a SUNY Cortland student during the last five years. Ann Cutler has served as keyboard specialist in the Multicultural Life Office and plays a highly visible role in planning and carrying out many events, including organizing the office’s annual Unity Celebrations. She is credited with offering the students who seek a diverse campus atmosphere a measure of continuity during several personnel changes in the office. Students say, it has been noted, that Ms. Cutler IS multicultural life at SUNY Cortland. Graduates recall Cutler fondly and often come back to pay her a visit.
