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.

Governor Signs Bill Paving the Way for Campus Brewery

Brooklyn Craft BreweryNew York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo recently signed a bill allowing the CIA to manufacture and sell alcoholic beverages, clearing the way for the development of a small brewery on the Hyde Park campus. The brewery will be operated in conjunction with Brooklyn Brewery and will complement the CIA’s other on-campus restaurants. It will be incorporated into the college’s curriculum, teaching students about fermentation, using grains in brewing, food pairings, as well as the management of a “brewpub” hospitality operation.

“By enabling this internationally renowned educational institution to combine forces with one of New York’s most iconic breweries, we will be able to further strengthen the mid-Hudson Valley’s tourism industry today, and also bring the state’s burgeoning craft beer industry to new heights by training the brewers of tomorrow,” Governor Cuomo said.

The Brooklyn Brewery at the CIA is expected to open to the public in the summer of 2015.
