Virtual CRP Graduate Open House for Admitted Students, Spring 2020

Friday, March 20, 2020 at 10:00am

Ithaca, Virtual

We are thrilled at the prospect of seeing you here in Ithaca as a student in August. At this time, however, we are working to ensure that the university's travel and events policies designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are properly observed. Unfortunately, this means that the Department of City and Regional Planning (CRP) cannot host you and your peers for the in-person open house event we had originally planned in Ithaca on March 20.

In lieu of this event, we are posting a series of introductory videos below from faculty, current students, and alumni, discussing various aspects of Cornell, the graduate degrees offered by the department, the CRP experience, and beyond. Although there is nothing like seeing the campus in person on a beautiful spring day, we are looking forward to capturing the unique spirit of our community in a new format.

Please feel free to reach out to individual faculty members with any questions you might have about their work or your education here. You can find their contact information on our faculty directory.

In addition, to give you a sense of the breadth and depth of both the fields represented by CRP and the scope of faculty interests, here are some episode links to "What Makes Us Human," a Cornell podcast in which some of our faculty have participated:

Associate Professor Neema Kudva, "Building Resilience"
Associate Professor Stephan Schmidt, "Cities Matter"
Assistant Professor Linda Shi, "Climate Change Inequality"
Professor Mildred Warner, "Zip Codes Matter"

Our program prides itself on fostering your unique trajectory through planning education, and to that end, we would like to ask you to send any questions you'd like us to answer to

If you haven't received them already, information packets will be coming via email to all admitted and wait-listed students with additional information about the programs, housing, and the beautiful Finger Lakes region. In the coming days, a FAQ with answers to common questions will be posted to this page.

Join us at 10:00 a.m. next Tuesday, March 24 for a live Q&A via Zoom. You will receive an email with the Zoom link in the next few days.

Lastly, Glorious to View is a virtual introduction to the beauty of Cornell University.
