Thanks to the extraordinary efforts of President David Skorton and many members of his administration, the extraordinary generosity of Chuck Feeney '56, and the nearly unanimous support of faculty, students, staff, and alumni, Cornell received the best year-end gift it could hope for — the go-ahead to build a science and technology campus on New York's Roosevelt Island in partnership with the Technion–Israel Institute of Technology. As the Cornell Chronicle reported, "the news was met with cheers from live-streamed supporters on two continents."

How did Cornell pull it off? Read the back story -- and more about the Cornell-Technion alliance.

Watch for more news here as the NYC project moves forward. Happy Holidays from everyone at CAM!
