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.

CIA and Pratt Collaborate on Food & Design Course

Students from the CIA and Pratt Institute are teaming up this fall to put the “art” in culinary arts. They are taking a class together that calls upon the special talents of these students from both colleges.

The collaboration—Food and Design: Hudson River—is a semester-long, three-credit class. The Hudson River was selected as the theme for this exploration of food and design as it has been vital to the region’s food, art, and commerce for centuries. During the semester, students will visit art museums and food producers as well as agricultural, artistic, and historic sites.

“We are delighted to collaborate with Pratt Institute to create an experiential learning experience inspired by the history, culture, geography, ecology, and beauty of the Hudson River,” says Dr. Denise Bauer, dean of the CIA’s School of Liberal Arts and Food Studies. “Coming from specialized colleges, CIA and Pratt students share the same kind of focus and passion for their chosen fields; bringing them together to create a collaborative food design project promises a unique outcome.”

During the semester, students will visit each other’s college in addition to meeting weekly on their own campus and connecting via video conference. The course wraps up with a culminating event in which teams of students from both colleges work together to create a project for public exhibit inspired by the culture of the Hudson River.

At the CIA, the course is a bachelor’s-level elective open to juniors and seniors majoring in Applied Food Studies or Food Business Management.
