Summer Orientation

During last year's event, on Thursday, August 17 from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. in Bailey Hall Auditorium, the Graduate School hosted a Dean’s Welcome. This included remarks from Cornell President Martha Pollack and Graduate School Dean and Vice Provost for Graduate Education Kathryn J. Boor. 

The Welcome Session for New Graduate Teaching Assistants (TAs), coordinated by the Center for Teaching Innovation, followed the Dean’s Welcome, also in Bailey Hall Auditorium. This session provided an overview of CTI’s resources, to support the success of new graduate teaching assistants (TAs) as they began their teaching at Cornell. In addition, there was an opportunity for all new international TAs (ITAs) to talk to other ITAs and CTI staff about specific resources available to ensure a smooth transition to Cornell.

Please note: this will replace the ITAP Summer Orientation.
