Campus Champion

Christopher Cubells is a champion of creative computer programming. The senior software engineer for Systems Administration and Web Services, who is also an adjunct faculty member, is known for his behind-the-scenes focus and dedication. We use the tools that Chris custom-developed when we visit, log into myRedDragon, search the Campus Directory, submit mid-semester estimates and send or receive an email using Campus Communicator. Chris developed innovative QR reader cards with his student Brittany Fialkowski ’18. Tested during Honors Convocation, his technology successfully live-captioned student names as they walked across the stage at SUNY Cortland’s four Commencement ceremonies last weekend.
