FYI

  • The college has green-lighted the renovation of the Lord Jeffery Inn, which has been closed for more than a year. While reduced in scope from the plan initially proposed in 2008, the project will involve renovating the 49 guest rooms and adding event space and an expanded restaurant. The plan is to begin construction this spring and reopen in spring 2011.

Copenhagen Bound

December 9, 2009

It’s Copenhagen or bust for two Copeland fellows this week. Chris Cuomo and Diana Pei Wu packed their bags and headed north to take part in the much-anticipated UN Climate Conference (COP15) in Denmark. Cuomo will participate with a delegation focused on the ethical dimensions of climate change, while Wu is affiliated with a delegation of grassroots community organizations pushing for “climate justice,” a movement aimed at eliminating unequal burdens that indigenous, low-income and other disadvantaged peoples suffer because of climate change.
