SUNY Cortland was recognized this fall as one of only 37 higher education institutions considered “exemplary” in encouraging students from diverse backgrounds to pursue degrees in the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics fields (STEM).
The recognition came from Minority Access Inc., a national organization dedicated to helping institutions diversify, during its 19th National Role Models Conference this fall in National Harbor, Maryland.
SUNY Cortland and two professionals with deep ties to the College were honored for their efforts to expand the nation’s pool of minority scientists, researchers and professionals.
Cortland President Erik Bitterbaum:
“This was an opportunity to recognize the efforts of people who are doing good work to advance diversity whether on this campus or in the local community or the global community.”
Distinguished Teaching Professor and Africana Studies Department Chair Seth Asumah and SUNY system Chief Diversity Officer Carlos Medina ’78 were named as role models for diversity, equity and inclusion at the conference.
