Garrett memorial gathering set for March 17 in Bailey

A memorial gathering for President Elizabeth Garrett will be held Thursday, March 17, at 3 p.m. in Bailey Hall. The public is welcome to attend and encouraged to take TCAT or park in the Hoy Road Parking Garage.

Cornell leaders and friends are expected to speak, and the Cornell University Chorus and Glee Club will perform. The event will be live-streamed on CornellCast and on the In Memoriam page that launched today.

Condolences have come from across the country, and visitors to the In Memoriam page can read those reactions and share their own messages and memories. The page also features photo and video galleries from Garrett’s tenure as president, and a link to Cornell Chronicle coverage.
