Call for Buffalo Area Alumni Mentors this Summer

2018 High Road Fellowship Mentorship Program

The inaugural High Road Fellowship Mentorship Program will match fellows with alumni through the Cornell Club of Greater Buffalo. Since 1880, Buffalo Cornellians have been actively supporting the University, and this presents another fantastic opportunity for our region to give back to Cornell.

Your commitment as a mentor will be to attend an orientation and meet at least twice during the summer with your assigned mentee. Mentors will serve as Buffalo ambassadors for the fellows and also provide consultation on academic and career paths.

Interested alumni should email Nicole Golias ’16 at njg56@cornell.edu by May 30th 2018. Mentors will be assigned to students based on alignment to student background and interests. Please include:

ASSEMBLY HOUSE 150 TOUR

Join the Cornell Club of Buffalo on Saturday April 21st as we tour ASSEMBLY HOUSE 150 with founder and noted architect/artist Dennis Maher ’99. Maher will take us through the journey of his organization: from idea inception and stabilizing the structure to current work with SACRA, the Society for the Advancement of Constructed Related Arts, which uses design arts to address critical needs related to neighborhood stabilization, preservation, and workforce training in Western New York.

ASSEMBLY HOUSE 150 is an experimental art/architecture space, specializing in the design and display of imaginative environments, furnishings, and aesthetic objects, while hosting public exhibitions, educational programs, and events that enhance the sense of wonder within everyday surroundings.

ASSEMBLY HOUSE 150 serves the Buffalo, NY community as an art/design/education incubator. The organization provides opportunities for students and apprentices to participate in projects that enhance their understanding of the built environment while teaching skills in the building arts.  It hosts public exhibitions that support the theme of the “urban imagination” and we catalyze projects in collaboration with building industry tradespeople.

ASSEMBLY HOUSE 150 is located at 150 Edward Avenue, Buffalo NY 14201.

The Club will be meeting Dennis on the site at 10:30AM. Please dress weather appropriate as the church is not heated. Afterwards join us for a dutch-treat lunch at Betty’s, just down the street!
