Campus Champion

Anthony Nocella, a part-time lecturer in sociology/anthropology, co-founded the “Save the Kids” re-entry program to keep at-risk youth away from violence and to connect college students with kids in juvenile detention centers. As a result, more than 800 SUNY Cortland students have volunteered at Hillbrook Juvenile Detention Center in Syracuse, N.Y. for a program that won a $70,000 grant from National Grid in December. Kids gain an understanding of role models and college students appreciate civic engagement through Anthony, who advises three clubs and instructs for four different departments on campus. An advocate of service-learning, Anthony has turned social justice into a hands-on experience for his students.
