Victory

From Cornellians For NYC's Tech Campus: "This was a huge victory for Cornell, and yes, the petition definitely played an important role. In fact, during the press conference to announce that Cornell had won, Bloomberg handed the microphone to his deputy mayor who specifically cited the petition as evidence of the broad support for the project within the Cornell community. He made a joke about how he had a huge book of signatures sitting on his desk. Awesome! Thanks again for all the help!"

Dear Cornell Students, Alumni, Parents, and Friends:

We are a group of Cornellians who want Cornell to win the bid to create an Applied Sciences and Engineering Campus in NYC.  We are calling on you, our fellow Cornellians, to help convince Mayor Bloomberg that Cornell is the best choice.

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION AND SHARE IT WITH YOUR FELLOW CORNELLIANS!

Top 5 Reasons Mayor Bloomberg Should Choose Cornell:

1) A purpose-built proposal specifically designed to create technology jobs in NYC’s unique economy.

2) Experience running NYC’s Weill Cornell Medical College, which has over 1200 faculty members, over 3000 staff members, and contributes over $1 billion annually to NYC’s economy.

3) The top-ranked engineering program in the Ivy League.

4) One of only a handful of universities in the country with top-ten programs in all of the key technology fields (Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Materials Science and Nanotechnology, and Information Science).

5) Cornell alumni with deep roots in every aspect of NYC’s emerging tech sector – start-up founders and entrepreneurs, existing industry leaders, venture and seed capital, and leading corporate customers.

Cornell has been committed to New York City for a long time, and we are incredibly well positioned to build on this partnership to accelerate New York City’s technology boom.

Please sign the petition letter to express your support for Cornell’s bid and to convince Mayor Bloomberg that Cornell is the obvious choice.

Thank you!

      CORNELL IS SIMPLY A BETTER CHOICE.

      I spent seven years in Ithaca at Cornell in the College of Art, Architecture, and Planning, and there is only one place greater in significance to me and that is New York City. The coexistence of the Cornell spirit brought together with the wealth of resources in the City will creat a catalyst for great collaboration combining the theoretical with the practical. A delightful concept to achieve.

      Cornell as a New York State, partial Land Grant school and an excellent Engineering School is the obvious choice for a NYC Tech School. The Home Campus, its faculty, labs and student body is almost local to the city.
