In an effort to help people in hospitality and labor address the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, Cornell will bring together faculty, industry and academic experts in two separate webcast panels, March 30 and 31.
Virtual events and resources at Cornell include: Images of Dragon Days past; Cornell experts discuss COVID-19; “Cosmos” and spotlight on women artists at the Johnson Museum; student theater and film updates; and a citizen science project surveying breeding birds.
Cornell will have connections to three of this year’s eight winners of 51 Pegasi b Fellowships in Planetary Astronomy. Two are coming to Ithaca for three years of postdoctoral work; another is a recent Cornell graduate.
On Cornell’s Ithaca campus this week, in the midst of a semester interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, a basketball court in Bartels Hall stirred to life with a new, urgent mission and two dozen volunteers who began sewing surgical masks for Cayuga Medical Center.
