Cornell will honor Nobel Prize winner Barbara McClintock (B.S. 1923, M.A. 1925, Ph.D. 1927), renowned Chinese scholar and diplomat Hu Shih (B.A. 1914), and the Cayuga Nation with names for new North Campus residence hall buildings.
For the Indigenous Cayuga Nation, who call themselves Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫʼ (pronounced Guy-yo-KO-no), Cornell will use the word Ganędagǫ: (pronounced Gah-NEN-dah-go) – meaning “hill” in the Gayogo̱ hó꞉nǫ' language. This is the ancestral name for the land upon which Cornell is built and the naming was supported by the Cayuga Nation’s current leadership.

Gorge Safety is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT! The two gorges that run through the Cornell campus – Cascadilla and Fall Creek – represent more than 10,000 years of beauty. They help to make Cornell one of the world’s most iconic campuses. While the gorges are wonderful for recreation and hiking, they can be very dangerous.
The Nathaniel Rand ’12 Memorial Gorge Safety Education Program, Cornell University’s gorge safety educational effort, is named in memory of a student who died in a gorge drowning accident in 2011. The program’s goal is to prevent future tragedies by informing visitors about safe and responsible use of the gorges.

Healthy Ways to Cope with Stress - The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major effect on our lives. Many of us are facing challenges that can be stressful, overwhelming, and cause strong emotions in adults and children.
Public health actions, such as social distancing, are necessary to reduce the spread of COVID-19, but they can make us feel isolated and lonely and can increase stress and anxiety. Learning to cope with stress in a healthy way will make you, the people you care about, and those around you become more resilient.
Symptoms, testing, what to do if sick, daily activities, and more.

Interested in Sustainability? Did you know Cornell's Lake Source Cooling Imitative is one of the most significant environmental initiatives ever undertaken by an American university to promote a sustainable future?
The renewable resource tapped by LSC has reduced Cornell's reliance on fossil fuels. LSC saves over 20 million kWh per year versus previous cooling methods, enough to continuously supply 2,500 homes in Tompkins County, NY! This represents about an 85% reduction in energy use for campus cooling.
Daily Decision & Contact Less Parking
“Data” is definitely one of the words of the year in parking and mobility. From curb management to contactless payments to right-sizing parking to nearly every step forward, we hear a lot about it all being fueled by data. And we all know the truth: It’s fairly easy to collect data. It’s much more difficult to know the best way to compile, analyze, and use it–much less choose which data points really matter–to make future-forward decisions.
Chris Lechner, CAPP, assistant director, data analytics and strategy, UCLA Transportation Commuter and Parking Services, breaks down business intelligence tools and how they work for parking and mobility operations in the March 2021 International Parking and Mobility Institute's Magazine.

Cornell President Pollack said, “one thing I’ve learned... about humanity, is how resilient people are.” She noted how well students have behaved and adhered to policies, and how faculty and staff have gone beyond the call of duty to keep the university running and students safe.
“I will never underestimate what a community can do for the greater good ever again,” Pollack said.
During the Employee Assembly Open Forum on March 12, President Martha E. Pollack and senior leaders reflected on ways Cornell has pursued its mission throughout the pandemic.
Cornell COVID-19 & Travel - Travel remains one of the biggest risks for getting or spreading COVID-19. To ensure the health and safety of Cornell’s campus and our surrounding community, faculty, staff, students, and visitors must abide by the university’s travel and visitor policy.
Travel remains one of the biggest risks for getting or spreading COVID-19. To ensure the health and safety of Cornell’s campus and our surrounding community, faculty, staff, students and visitors must abide by the university’s travel and visitor policy.
Students residing in the Ithaca area during the spring 2021 semester are expected to remain in Ithaca for the duration of the semester with limited-to-no personal travel outside of the greater Ithaca area. Student travel during this period will be subject to a strict approval process limiting any personal student travel to that which is deemed essential due to extenuating circumstances.
For faculty and staff, the restriction on non-essential business travel has been extended through at least May 15, 2021. Essential business travel requires approval by the appropriate college dean, vice president, or vice provost, and plans must follow existing university policies governing travel.
Personal travel that presents an increased risk of virus transmission is strongly discouraged. If faculty or staff do choose to travel, they are expected to comply with all state, federal and international travel guidelines. Employees who travel internationally for personal reasons will be expected to follow CDC guidance upon their return.
Cornell is working with campus partners, as well as local and state resources, to protect the health and well-being of the Cornell community
All travelers entering New York from a state that is not a contiguous state who have been outside of New York for more than 24 hours must complete the Traveler Health Form.
All out-of-state travelers must complete the form upon entering New York. Travelers who leave the airport without completing the form will be subject to a $10,000 fine and may be brought to a hearing and ordered to complete mandatory quarantine. Travelers coming to New York through other means of transport, including trains and cars, must fill out the form online.
New travel guidelines are in place allowing out-of-state travelers to “test out” of the mandatory 14-day quarantine.

President Martha E. Pollack Statement on Anti-Asian Violence
Members of the Cornell Community,
The recent string of shootings in the Atlanta area, which left at least six Asian women dead, is appalling, and my heart goes out to the victims and their families. While the details of these killings are still forthcoming, we do know that throughout the course of the pandemic, there has been a marked increase in racism and violence toward Asians and Asian Americans.
It is intolerable that these communities have experienced acts of racism, violence and hatred. As a campus community, we denounce these vile acts and stand firmly with our Asian and Asian American friends and colleagues.
Please know that we are here to support you. Cornell takes reports of bias or discrimination seriously, and any members of our community who have experienced or witnessed an act of bias are encouraged to report the incident at https://diversity.cornell.edu/our-commitments/bias-reporting-cornell. And, for Cornell’s Asian and Asian American students, staff and faculty, please know that the Asian and Asian American Center (https://scl.cornell.edu/identity-resources/asian-asian-american-center-a3c) is also here to support you, as is the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) at https://fsap.cornell.edu.

PREVENT A DEADLY CRASH - As more Americans choose to ride bikes and walk to stay healthy, and as an alternative to driving, pedestrian and cyclist deaths in motor-vehicle-related crashes have increased over the past 10 years.
Help keep everyone safe on the road. Remember, no one—no driver, cyclist, or pedestrian—has sole rights to the road. It’s a shared space where we all have rights and responsibilities.

Work for Cornell University? You may have received a survey from Working at Cornell (Cornell HR) with the subject "Cornell Workforce Remote Work Survey" in the past 24 hours.
If you did receive this email, please take the time to complete it. Many members of Cornell's workforce began a sudden and unplanned fully remote work experience just about a year ago.
Cornell would like to hear from you about your experience working remotely over the past 12 months. Your input is very important to us and will help as we think through our post-Pandemic work plans.
