Campus Champion

Elianny Duarte is a senior sociology major with a concentration in criminology and a minor in Spanish. She was raised in the Dominican Republic, arrived in the U.S. in 2014 and started at SUNY Cortland as a 16-year-old. Elianny found her confidence by joining student clubs to connect with others. She’s now president of La Familia Latina, vice president of the Black Student Union and a student intern with New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG). Passionate about community work, she successfully recruits others, whether it’s to register to vote or to join an e-board. She urges all students to be open to new things and to get involved.

A good start is to attend an event during Latine History Month, which begins Thursday, Sept. 15.
