Faculty members Diane Brand of the public justice department and Christopher LaLonde of the English and creative writing department received the 2016 President’s Award for Excellence in Academic Advisement at the college’s annual Teaching and Learning Awards Ceremony in the fall.
Retiring as a sergeant from the town of Clay Police Department in 2007, Brand has 30 years’ experience in law enforcement and continues to serve as a town of Camillus police officer, providing her with experience and insight in a multidisciplinary academic program that combines criminal justice, human services and law.
LaLonde, an Oswego faculty member since 2001, has served as the college’s director of general education for the past 10 years and has also been first-year adviser for students who are undeclared or who have declared majors in English, and for returning and transfer students at all levels.
