Campus Champion

As SUNY Cortland’s Title IX Coordinator, Nan Pasquarello spearheads programs, activities and a website that teach the important messages of sexual violence and harassment prevention and response available to students and employees. Nan’s success lies in her collaboration with others, sharing the common goal of making Cortland a safer and more responsive campus. She has provided Title IX trainings for more than 1,300 students during the first two months of the school year. She also educates College employees about their responsibilities. Nan champions the crusade that every person at SUNY Cortland recognizes this is no place for sexual discrimination.
