This Week's Organization Spotlight
MiXed at Cornell
At last Thursday’s lunch we began a conversation about race, campus climate, Cornell and students’ experiences navigating the university. We will continue the dialogue on Thursday, November 19, from noon – 1:00pm.
Class Councils and the Office of Alumni Affairs cordially invite you to the first annual Cornell Leadership Conference. The Cornell Leadership Conference started with a simple idea: Let’s inspire and empower students today to be the leaders of tomorrow. Bringing back some of our best young alumni speakers to reflect on their time at Cornell and beyond, we strive to provide students on campus with the tools to develop as a leader. With a rousing call to action about the desperate need for leaders from our keynote speaker, students will leave the Conference ready to lead the next generation of Cornellians.

On the Corner follows Julian, an African-American teenager, and Officer James, the white police officer who detains him, as they travel from the Wall Street slave market of 1690 to a Bronx high school in 1978. When they disagree about the meaning of this history, their journey leads them to the heart of our divided America, and the possibility of a new future.

When: November 19th & 21st-22nd, Thursday & Saturday at 7:00pm, Sunday at 2:00pm
