Campus Champion

Erin Morris, assistant professor of sport management, has a message of inclusiveness in saying there’s a sport for everybody. In her classes, non-mainstream sports become the norm and she and her invited speakers present examples of adaptive sports across the spectrum. Her research focuses on increasing participation of girls and women in sport. Erin has served on SUNY Cortland’s Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression (SOGIE) Committee for four years and co-chaired for two. She strives to help LGBTQIAP students find their voices and to create a safer, more LGBTQIAP-inclusive learning environment.
