Our Culture

COCM is a diverse community of student housing professionals complied of different backgrounds and experiences. Our entire workforce contributes significantly to our success in the student housing industry. COCM’s culture is defined by the unwavering principles, objectives and values of our actions. Our employees work together within a team environment of mutual respect, honesty and integrity. All of this makes up a group of energetic and knowledgeable professionals who take pride in our work while serving our owners, campus partners and residents.

“Despite our sites being geographically located throughout the country, I feel that the company makes a concerted effort to establish a network of knowledge and talent that you can tap into for assistance with colleagues that understand the nuances that may be affecting your day-to-day. I also enjoy that unlike other companies, COCM leadership make it a priority to know and support their employees and I appreciate the opportunities for engagement that they have provided through efforts and initiatives that can help shape the future of the company. I am excited for what lies ahead as COCM continues to expand its portfolio and growth in setting the standard for college student housing.”

Professional Development

COCM’s commitment to remarkable services does not end with our clients and residents. We are also committed to remarkable support of our employees in their professional development and growth.

All COCM employees are encouraged to take advantage of career and personal development opportunities throughout their tenure. As part of our encouragement efforts, the professional development fund committee was created to financially support staff activities that go beyond the normal scope of duties. This effort has resulted in many of our employees becoming involved in professional organizations, serving on boards, and volunteering on committees.

For more information regarding the professional development fund, please contact profdevelopment@cocm.com.

Director of Housing and Residence Life, Cornish Commons at Cornish College of the Arts

As a woman navigating the professional world, I have been consistently met with closed doors and an undervaluing of my worth and talent. For the first time in my professional career, I have been surrounded by peers who are interested in disrupting the status quo and helping others rise up. The support and guidance of the many strong colleagues I’ve encountered during my career at COCM is what keeps me motivated. Those who have been paving the paths before me continue to inspire me to be a way-shower and door opener for my colleagues, team, student staff, and residents.  It’s a fulfilling experience to be surrounded by people finding new and exciting ways to challenge standards while providing service and quality outcomes that far exceed our industry expectations.
