Unfortunately, the fires affecting our community continue to grow. Yesterday, Red Flag warnings were issued through Friday afternoon representing ideal conditions for fire combustion and spread.

Given this, we have made the decision to delay a return to in-person instruction at Greystone until Monday, October 12. All campus buildings will remain closed until that time. Our intention is to reopen the Residence Halls on Sunday, October 11. While we expect the situation to be resolved by then, we must acknowledge this is a fluid situation; we will continue to remain in touch with students via email and the Everbridge Emergency Notification system as further information becomes available.

Classes, which resumed Wednesday, September 30 online, will continue to be delivered virtually during this interim period. By continuing in this way, instructors will be able to keep pace with the semester—providing lecturing instruction now on theory and techniques, and enabling students to get right back into the kitchens and bakeshops once campus reopens. Students, please continue to monitor the student portal and your Moodle sites for further information regarding your classes.

Most students have returned home already or are staying with family or friends. If you are unable to do this for an extended period, or if you have remained behind and are staying at Copia, our Student Affairs team can offer assistance. Please update your status on the "2020 Glass Fire Status" form on the Residence Life portal to keep us apprised of your status or to indicate that you need assistance.

PBS Program to Feature the CIA

PBS Shooting Video on LocationA crew from Food Forward, a new public television program, was on the Hyde Park campus in early July to shoot a segment for the upcoming season. The segment will feature the CIA’s efforts towards sustainable food sourcing and purchasing from local farmers, as well as the college’s support for veterans transitioning into new post-military careers.

Profiled on the program is a student who is a veteran of the U.S. Navy and was doing his externship field experience at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY, a holistic studies retreat that values sustainability.

Food Forward’s pilot episode was a 2013 James Beard Foundation Award finalist in the Television Special/Documentary category. The episode from the CIA is scheduled to air in spring 2014.
