Cornell Tech Announces a Town Hall Community Update

Cornell Tech will host a Town Hall style meeting on March 29th. A community update will deliver detailed information on campus activities and construction as the transition glides toward a grand opening by the end of summer.

In October, last year, we reported on a press briefing that Cornell Tech offered at its temporary location in Google's Chelsea New York headquarters. The dynamics were all in place for the realization of a world class, potentially game-changing hybrid campus that was less than a year away.

Like the good neighbor they intend to be, Cornell Tech carried on with presentations at task force meetings with the Roosevelt Island Community Coalition, those as much involved with the nitty-gritty of operations as with visions of introducing a new age of business, government and academic cooperation.

Now, they are inviting Roosevelt Islanders to a community oriented, town hall style meeting, a get acquainted update aimed at building relationships between soon to be neighbors.

The meeting will be held from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on March 29th at the Manhattan Park Theatre Club, 8 River Road. Everyone's invited. What can you expect as topics?

  • Academic programs
  • Administrative updates
  • Campus operations in preparation for the move from Chelsea to Roosevelt Island (security, open space plan, makeup and function of each building)
  • Final Phase 1 construction update
  • K-12 and community engagement

Mark your calendars and plan to arrive early. This is expected to be an SRO event.
