The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

  Issue Number 17 • Tuesday, May 19, 2015  


Campus Champion

Participate in public life. That’s been the charge led by Richard Kendrick for the past dozen years, since he helped create an outlet for service-oriented student work through the Institute for Civic Engagement. At SUNY Cortland, topics such as “community service” and “applied learning” are synonymous with his name. Likewise, countless programs focused on politics, health and business development owe thanks to the retiring professor of sociology/anthropology, who served the College for nearly a quarter century in total. A strong bridge exists between the campus and the community. Richard, no doubt, is one of the lead architects to credit.
