Cornell Charter Day Celebration
April 26, 2015

As part of the Cornell Charter Day Weekend, we watched a livestream of a panel of Cornell Presidents discuss The Future of Higher Education. Presidents Rhodes (moderator), Skorton, Lehman and Rawlings were joined by Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust and, briefly, by Cornell President-Elect Beth Garrett.

This event was one of the highlights of Charter Day Weekend: A Festival of Ideas and Imagination, April 24-27. The weekend included a series of events on the Ithaca campus -- academic, musical, athletic, theatrical and more. The weekend culminated in a formal ceremony and video premiere to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Cornell University Charter.
