For all the students who are taking classes from home, we miss you! We are sending you all views from Ho Plaza. #wemissourstudents #cornelluniversity #zoomuniversity

Students at our Ithaca campus safely gathered together to pay respects and honor the legacy of Cornell Alumna, The Notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg 54 . Ginsburg was the second women to serve on the Supreme Court! She transformed the American society through her fight for womens rights and later LGBTQ+ rights. She will surely be missed. #RGB #supremecourt #WomxnsRights #lgbtqrights

Join us in giving a warm welcome to Michele Belot, one of nine new faculty members that began at ILR this fall, joining the Department of Economics. Her research is at the crossroad between behavioral economics and labor economics.https://bit.ly/3hawKCp #ilrschool #cornell

First day of classes! Pretty quiet start to the term, but I already helped my first student find Ives 305! Now doing some office hours under the tent in the Katz courtyard. No takers on office hours yet, but nice to see some students hanging out and studying under the tent. An echo of the Quonset Hut spirit from ILRs early years! #ilr75 #ives305 #cornell #firstdayofschool

Going remote didnt stop ILRies from having meaningful summer experiences. https://bit.ly/32CyEWS
