Robert McCaffery is the Resident Hall Director of MacDuff Hall at SUNY Oneonta completing his first year here. Robert was originally born in Queens, New York, but was raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Originally, Robert went to college at Niagara University in upstate New York and completed a Bachelor’s degree in Criminology with a focus in Pre-Law and a Master’s in Criminal Justice Administration. During this time, he held many leadership positions in residence life on that campus. He soon realized his passion for helping students and pursed another Master’s degree from Canisius College in College Student Personnel Administration.
He has worked at previous institutions and has held positions in academic advisement, new student orientation, campus activities, residence life, and many more. In the future, Robert plans to transition into academic advisement or campus programming. He is a very big fan of comics which you might see sometimes when he wears his Batman themed bowtie.
