Tina LaMour

Associate Professor of Art, Art Department Coordinator

Ask a colleague about Tina, and you will quickly hear about her passion for and commitment to the arts and art education.  Over her time at NCCC, Tina has labored tirelessly to find ways for students at the college and within the region to display their work.

One needs only to walk the halls of the Malone campus to see the fruits of her efforts. These exhibitions showcase our students’ creativity to all who study and work on the campus. They are an extension of Tina’s work as an educator which we, the public, benefit from as well.

Tina received a SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Faculty Service in 2017
