What an incredible summer this turned out to be! We not only reached our crowdfunding goal, but we surpassed the $15K mark with flying colors thanks to support from a donor roster that includes Florida course alumni and faculty, EEB alums, faculty and staff, along with Cornell supporters from all walks of life — THANK YOU!!
Now that we are heading into yet another academic year on the Ithaca campus, we are filled with pride and hope for the future. Department news headlines, and social media posts range from stories about Diversity Recruitment Weekend, to research papers about drone tech offering new ways to manage climate change, the wildly popular Shark MOOC, and articles about how EEB is at the forefront of active learning efforts at Cornell.
Our colleagues at CALS will keep this project website online for viewers to learn more about the Florida field course and the success of our campaign, but please consider staying in touch with EEB electronically. By checking the department’s main website, and our special Florida field course page, you’ll learn updates regarding the Root-Marks Fund for Field Teaching, and our 50th anniversary of field courses celebration. EEB news and current events can also be found on Facebook and Twitter—social media is a great way to stay connected to Cornell, classmates, colleagues and our department.
With sincere gratitude,
Christine Bogdanowicz, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Cornell University
