Summer Orientation

The Graduate School will host a Dean’s Welcome, on Thursday, August 17 from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. in Bailey Hall Auditorium. It will include 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), by the Center for Teaching Innovation, will follow the Dean’s Welcome, also in Bailey Hall Auditorium. This session will provide an overview of CTI’s resources, to support the success of all new graduate teaching assistants (TAs) as they begin their teaching at Cornell. In addition, there will be 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.
