Campus Champion

When you want something done on campus, call Joe Westbrook. This architect turned project coordinator, with 10 years in the Facilities Planning, Design and Construction Office, finds his drive in connecting people for the good of the whole. Joe always ensures people know what’s going on and how things work — qualities that come out in his role as president of United University Professions (UUP) Cortland chapter. In early May he led the annual SUNY Cortland Works! event, uniting all employees in celebration of their efforts. Tomorrow, his work continues when UUP honors professionals for their work milestones at the College.
