Corianna Lipira

Corianna Lipira – Ammerman Campus

Stony Brook University - Social Work
As a recipient of both the Get There From Here scholarship and the 2019 SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence, Corianna was a major presence on campus. She spoke with potential incoming students as an Orientation Leader, and led her fellow students as the secretary of the Student Government Association, and member of the Community Service Club and Undocumented Student’s Task Force. Corianna plans to obtain her Juris Doctor Degree and become a prisoner’s rights attorney to advocate on their behalf and change laws that prevent them from reentering society with dignity.

Why did you choose this major/concentration?
“I chose this major because I want to act as an advocate for others. I recognize that I can use my voice and my skill set to make a positive change in the life of another, and I feel that it is my purpose to do so.”
