She was well known as dedicated, professional, responsible, respectful and, above all, exceptionally kind to her students and colleagues. She helped her students become career-minded, work-ready professionals and helped them secure internships that most often led directly to employment.

“Rosanna was a mentor for new and established faculty,” said Criminal Justice Professor William J. Fassinger. “Her attention to detail, resourcefulness and advocacy for students exemplifies the mission of SUNY Canton.”
