The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

Campus Champion

Every woman who has taken the 12-hour R.A.D. training course gives it rave reviews. From an instructor’s perspective, the Rape Aggression Defense Program is about one thing: empowerment. “It’s always rewarding to see women develop newfound confidence,” University Police Officer Jennifer Olin says. Empowerment is something Officer Olin delivers routinely, even if it’s in the middle of her night shift to a group of students. “We look out for our students,” she says. “We’re here to protect their lives and property but we also serve as advisors and counselors.”
