Campus Champion

There’s more inside Parade magazine than its annual “What People Earn” report. This year, the online edition of the publication gave props to History Professor Randi Storch by including her second book, Working Hard for the American Dream: Workers and their Unions, World War I to the Present, on its short list of Labor Day “must reads” — tremendous praise from the most widely read magazine in America. The chair of the College’s History Department and Live-In Cortland Initiative Committee fittingly serves as the grievance officer for SUNY Cortland’s United University Professions chapter.
