Campus Champion

When she graduates next month, Laura Barnstead will leave a void in the Cortland community, on campus and off. Laura has volunteered more than one hundred hours of service through her service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega and as publicity intern with the Institute for Civic Engagement. A dual major in political science and professional writing, Laura developed “Humans of Engagement” on the Institute’s Facebook page, modeled after the popular “Humans of New York” photoblog. Students tell stories of their applied learning experiences in their own words. Laura’s efforts have helped the Institute increase audience engagement on Facebook by 1,750 percent.
