Help the Cornell Club of Greater Buffalo Clean-Up the Buffalo River at the Harlem Road Fishing Access Site!

Please help Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper and the Cornell Club of Greater Buffalo restore some of our region's most valuable assets -- our waterways!

On the morning of Saturday, April 26, the Club will be participating in Riverkeeper's annual spring shoreline sweep 'captaining' the clean-up efforts of the DEC's fishing access site on the Buffalo River at Harlem Road. Our efforts will begin at 9AM and volunteers should dress appropriately. Gloves and trash bags will be provided. Show your Cornell pride by wearing red! Family and friends are of course invited to pitch in. The cleanup will conclude around 12PM.

Questions? Or to register for the clean-up please email your name, contact info, and anticipated number in your group to Chris Kramer at cakramer42@yahoo.com.

The Harlem Road DEC site is located just north of the Tops Market in the Harlem/Mineral Springs Plaza. The Plaza address is 800 Harlem Road, Buffalo, NY 14224. Please contact Chris Kramer if you have any questions or concerns about finding the location.

Annual Meeting and Cornell Faculty Lecture is May 5

Cornell Club of Greater Buffalo - Annual Meeting and Cornell Faculty Lecture featuring Ron Ehrenberg: "Is the Golden Age of the Private Research University Over?"

May 5, 2014 6 p.m.
The Buffalo Club, Millard Fillmore Room
388 Delaware Avenue
Buffalo, N.Y.

Registration: $40 per person
Note: Business attire is required, including jackets and ties for men.

The Cornell Club of Greater Buffalo, in cooperation with Cornell University's School of Industrial and Labor Relations and Office of Alumni Affairs, cordially invites Cornellians and their guests to our annual meeting:

Ronald G. Ehrenberg, PhD, Irving M. Ives Professor of Industrial and Labor Relations and Economics, Cornell University, Director of the Cornell Higher Education Research Institute,
and Member of the SUNY Board of Trustees.

Reception to begin at six o'clock, with food served at six-thirty; featuring a cabaret style dinner, including: Assorted fruits and cheeses * Over Roasted Turkey Breast with Whole Grain Mustard and Cranberry Compote * Cheese Tortellini and Tomato Vinaigrette * Curried Cauliflower and Chick Pea with Pine Nuts * Club Dressed Celery Cabbage with Lentils * Desserts and Coffee Service * Cash Bar

In the wake of the global financial crisis, and amidst significant upheavals in student demographics, federal research funding, debt levels, technological change, and regulatory policy, there is significant concern that the golden age of selective private universities like Cornell is over and that their financial models are breaking down. Ehrenberg will discuss his experiences and observations from his career of studying the economics of higher education, while painting his vision of the future for these institutions.

An internationally recognized expert on the economics of higher education, Ronald G. Ehrenberg is the Irving M. Ives Professor of Industrial and Labor Relations and Economics at Cornell University and a Stephen H. Weiss Presidential Fellow. He also is Director of the Cornell Higher Education Research Institute.

From 1995 to 1998 he served as Cornell's Vice President for Academic Programs, Planning and Budgeting. Ehrenberg served as an elected member of the Cornell Board of Trustees from July 1, 2006 to June 30, 2010. New York State Governor David Paterson nominated him for membership on the SUNY Board of Trustees in 2009. A graduate of SUNY Binghamton and Northwestern University, he has authored or co-authored over 150 papers and authored or edited 26 books, and frequently is quoted in the media on a wide range of topics affecting higher education.

At the Club's annual meeting a new slate of officers and directors for the 2014-2015 calendar will be considered for installation.
