Cornell NYC Tech Vice President and Roosevelt Island resident Cathy Dove
is leaving her position at Cornell to become President of Paul Smith's College. The Cornell Chronicle reports:
Cathy Dove, vice president of Cornell Tech in New York City, has been named the 10th president of Paul Smith’s College in the Adirondacks. The first female president of Paul Smith’s, she will begin her new position Sept. 1.Cornell Provost Kent Fuchs adds:
As vice president of Cornell Tech since 2012, Dove has been responsible for all administrative, operational, outreach, capital planning and construction functions for the campus currently under construction on Roosevelt Island and at its temporary location in Manhattan....
Cathy has been a core part of Cornell Tech since its inception. She worked with me, Dean Dan Huttenlocher and a team of others at Cornell to form the unique vision of Cornell Tech and help make it a reality. In the 2 1/2 years since Cornell Tech was born, Cathy has worked with Dan, university leadership and our partners at The Technion to build a team on the ground in New York City that includes more than 50 faculty and staff. We’ve graduated two classes already with master’s degrees in engineering and computer science, and expect more than 100 students to be enrolled this fall as we add an MBA and master’s in information science to the program, and continue to get ready to move to our permanent Roosevelt Island home in 2017. That great team and all of these efforts, now years into this endeavor, will continue to build and innovate for many years to come. Cathy’s leadership helped insure that, and we are grateful for all she helped accomplish here.Cornell NYC Tech Assistant Director of Government and Community Relations Jane Swanson told the Cornell Roosevelt Island Construction and Community Task Force last night about Ms. Dove leaving her position.
Here's Ms. Dove and Cornell President David Skorton (soon to be President of the Smithsonian Institution) in April 2012 about to attend their first Roosevelt Island Town Hall Meeting
and my interview with them about the Cornell NYC Tech Roosevelt Island project.
Ms. Dove was an excellent representative of Cornell to the Roosevelt Island community. She will be missed.
Best of luck to her in her new position.
