Sara Eddleman

As the college's chief administrative and financial officer, Sara Eddleman oversees the non-academic functions of the college such as personnel, information technologies, facilities, and finance; collaborates broadly with faculty and staff; participates in strategic planning and long-term resource stewardship; and facilitates progress on the Dean's initiatives.

During her dozen-plus years as a people leader in higher education, Eddleman has supported robust research operations, shepherded thoughtful organizational change, and fostered inclusive environments. She began her career as an academic administrator in the Department of Anthropology at the State University of New York at Buffalo, moving to Cornell University in 2013. At Cornell, Eddleman has been the senior administrator in three departments (Neurobiology and Behavior, Literatures in English, and most recently the Lab of Atomic and Solid State Physics) across three divisions (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, College of Arts & Sciences, Research Division). She has also served extensively on cross-college committees designed to improve practices and to develop sharable resources. The through line across her wide-ranging experience is her commitment to building and sustaining collaborative relationships with staff, faculty, and students alike. She is thrilled to bring her curiosity, care, and expertise to AAP.
Eddleman holds a B.A. (triple major: English, German, Philosophy) from Case Western Reserve University, an M.A. (English Literature and Critical Theory) from the University at Buffalo, an M.B.A. from the University of Oklahoma, and an M.S. (Communication) from Cornell University.
