Campus Champion

Ten years ago, following more than three decades as a Syracuse City School District social studies teacher, Jim Miller “retired” to become a SUNY Cortland professor. Along with his practical experience, Jim brought along an event he has chaired nearly as long as he’s taught: the CROP Hunger Walk. “It’s a perfect service-learning course for my adolescence education: social studies majors, something they can take into their own classrooms and unite service-learning and global history,” says Miller, whose efforts have yielded over 20 SUNY Cortland teams set to “End Hunger One Step at a Time” on Sunday, Oct. 20.
