President Garrett Expands Graduate Student Support and Funding

I had a chance to hear President Garrett speak to the Cornell Graduate & Professional Student Assembly on Monday and was very impressed. I was expecting to hear the standard “Keep up the good work, look forward to working with you” spiel, and was pleasantly surprised to hear about all the activity that’s under way.

In addition to already being active, President Garrett struck me as very well-informed, opinionated, erudite and well-spoken, while being quite down-to-earth and eager to talk to students, rather than down to them. I (cautiously) have high hopes for Cornell under her guidance, and I’m personally looking forward to working with her administration as part of the GPSA.
