Trustee-Council Annual Meeting 2013

October 24–26

Cornell University has always been a place for thought leaders—those individuals and teams whose vision, passion, talent, and courage to think differently create enduring, paradigm-shifting change on campus and beyond. TCAM 2013 gave us an opportunity to celebrate them, and the many ways in which Cornell fosters and embodies thought leadership.

We invite you to view the weekend highlights listed below. A full description of each can be found in the TCAM Schedule.

About Trustee-Council Annual Meeting

Every October, the Cornell University Council holds its annual meeting in Ithaca in conjunction with the Board of Trustees. At Trustee-Council Annual Meeting (TCAM) members are informed about current Cornell concerns, activities, and priorities. The meeting provides an opportunity to become more knowledgeable about the university and to ask questions, as well as to express views and ideas. Members also become more acquainted with Cornell faculty, staff, students, and administrators through committee meetings, discussions, lectures, and social events.
