Richard C. Jones was President from 1968-1978. Within those ten years, Jones helped continue the efforts to physically expand the College through the construction of new buildings including the establishment of the Hall of Fame room. He was considered more relaxed when it came to the College's alcohol policy as Cortland permitted alcoholic drinks on Campus for the first time. Even as the College continued to grow, a need for budget restrictions emerged. Also during this time, President Jones faced a student body who occupied the Miller Administration Building out of protest to the Kent State Shootings and War in Vietnam. While Jones continued to help increase the campus and enrollment, he was faced with difficult decisions and times.
