A little more than four years ago, we welcomed Chris Marshall to Cornell as associate vice president for alumni affairs. Chris came to Ithaca from Lehigh University, his alma mater, where he had served as executive director of the alumni association for seven years. Chris quickly revamped the Office of Alumni Affairs, adding personnel and making many significant changes to its programs and operations. He also served as a member of the Cornell Alumni Magazine Committee, attending our meetings and offering important insights and support.

It was announced this week that Chris will soon be leaving Cornell and returning to Pennsylvania, closer to family and friends, and that he will have a position with the philanthropic management firm GG+A. We will miss working with Chris and wish him well. His replacement will be Jim Mazza ’88, a longtime member of the leadership team in Alumni Affairs and Development who is well-known to many Cornell alumni. We look forward to working with Jim as we move forward to the Cornell Sesquicentennial in 2015.

— Jim Roberts ’71

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Cornell Print E-mail
Friday, 12 October 2012

Well, maybe not everything — but a lot of stuff. It's all at the Institutional Research and Planning website.

As the Cornell Chronicle explained it, the recently redesigned site has "information about students, faculty and staff — how many, where they come from. How we're doing on diversity. Survey results. Accreditation status. Everything is presented in ways that clearly point out trends for planners to consider."

Take a look here.

Skorton on Student Health Print E-mail
Wednesday, 12 September 2012

Last week, President David Skorton posted a new entry in his Huffington Post blog on the subject of student health and well-being. "Many institutions, including Cornell, have adopted a philosophy of freedom with responsibility," wrote Skorton, "giving students the freedom to choose their own actions but holding them responsible for the choices they make." But, he added, there are certain key areas "where I believe we in higher education need to step up our efforts." These include high-risk drinking, hazing, mental health promotion, and concussion prevention.

Living and Learning (About Your Roommates) Print E-mail

As a recent story in the Daily Sun pointed out, not all incoming Cornell students are happy when they get to campus and discover where they will be living — and with whom. The situation is even tougher when there are more first-year students than expected and you end up bunking (expensively) in a converted lounge.

On the other hand, coming back for your second year has its rewards. See our blog entry "Brave New World" (below).

Big Red Bird Print E-mail
Tuesday, 07 August 2012

According to a paper recently published in The Auk, the journal of the American Ornithologists Union, three Cornell graduates discovered a new species of bird during a 2008 expedition in the Andes Mountains of Peru. The fruit-eating Sira barbet has a black mask, a pale belly, and a scarlet breast, and DNA analysis confirmed that it is, indeed, a distinct species.

The Cornellians — Michael Harvey, Glenn Seeholzer and Ben Winger — gave the new bird the scientific name Capito fitzpatricki in honor of the Lab of O's executive director, John Fitzpatrick.

For more on the discovery, go to the Lab of O website.
