Dear Commons Community,
The New York Times has an article today on how Cornell University and Technion-Israel Institute of Technology developed the winning proposal to develop a new college for applied science on Roosevelt Island (New York City). It appears a combination of capable presidents, supportive alumni, and a generous gift from one donor were the key ingredients that enabled the Cornell/Technion bid to win the City’s request for proposals.
As indicated in the past on this blog, this should be a real boon for science and technology for the City.
thanks for linking to that article, go cornell!!
