Campus Champion

“The Green Dot initiative is so important for SUNY Cortland,” says Lauren Herman ’12, M’14, who spent the last year planning details for the reduction of power-based personal violence. Now it’s time to spread the message and leading us forward is SUNY Cortland’s health educator, a physical education grad who then earned her master’s in health education. Lauren is one of a handful now trained to lead the culture change on campus, transforming us into active bystanders. It’s so important as a part of our wellness wheel, says Lauren, whose daily focus is a campus community that is happy and healthy.

Capture the Moment


All over campus, yellow bikes are disappearing. Don’t worry, the innovative Community Bike Project that has dotted SUNY Cortland with refurbished, yellow bicycles since 2003 isn’t going away. It’s just – quite literally – in the red. Outdoor Pursuits Bike Technician Tom Epp, pictured above, began painting the bikes bright Cortland red during some warm days in early March. Now known as the Cortland Bike Project, the program allows members of the College community to check out bikes for free for one week at a time during selected dates in the spring and fall. Learn more on the OP Community Bike Program web page.
