Campus Champion

When COVID-19 changed how and what we needed to communicate, Michelle LoGerfo, assistant director of web and digital marketing, worked tirelessly to disseminate rapidly changing information on the website. Michelle was key to launching the Restart SUNY Cortland, Red Dragon Safe and Fall 2020 Campus Guide web pages. She motivated students to connect through a Study Buddy video and collaborated on the first Virtual Celebration for Commencement. Always a team player, Michelle serves on a dozen committees, engages with students interested in digital marketing and masters her web responsibilities including accessibility, quality assurance, digital marketing and training users.
