Campus Champion

Alexandra Cicero was studying abroad in Romania last spring when she received the Newman Civic Fellowship, which supports students devoted to finding solutions to the challenges facing U.S. communities. Already involved in SUNY Cortland projects related to hunger, the environment, social justice and voting, the dual international studies and communication studies major returned to serve as student coordinator of the SUNY Cortland Cupboard, a food bank for food-insecure students. The Cupboard opened last month and Alexandra is grateful for the many volunteers who helped it come to fruition. Now this campus champion turns her focus to increasing awareness of this invaluable student resource. Read more about the SUNY Cortland Cupboard
