Campus Champion

Daniel Sidebottom, director of Administrative Computing Services, is honored by his recent SUNY Technology Conference Lifetime Achievement Award. His 40-year career with SUNY, nearly 20 of those at SUNY Cortland, offers evidence of his outstanding contributions that have helped advance SUNY technology. His EDUCAUSE article, “Blending Nature and Technology,” discussed network technology at Raquette Lake. In 2003, Dan’s team implemented the College’s first full voice over IP network infrastructure, earning SUNY Cortland the prestigious EDUCAUSE Networking Award. As a governor’s taskforce member, he helped launch the SUNY NY-Alert emergency notification system, and through Dan’s involvement on the president’s taskforce, SUNY Cortland led with a campus-wide emergency alert speaker system.
