Campus Champion

Caesaré German, a senior inclusive childhood education major concentrating in social sciences, has had a 16-year detour in finishing college, which included living some years on the west coast. Now set to complete her degree in December 2023, she’s thankful for the educational support she receives through scholarships, grants and Cortland’s Urban Recruitment of Educators (C.U.R.E.) program. Committed to giving back, Caesaré is active with the Transfer Network Team, Tau Sigma, Black Lives Matter at School and community volunteering, all while fulfilling her immersion requirement teaching 4th graders in Syracuse, N.Y.

We celebrate Caesaré and some 225 others during Non-Traditional Students Week Monday, Nov. 14, through Friday, Nov. 18.
