Cornell Tech is a new graduate campus of Cornell University that brings together faculty, students, business leaders and tech entrepreneurs in a catalytic environment to reinvent the way we live in the digital age.
A hallmark of Cornell Tech is a rapid pace of change and growth, which serve as opportunities to pursue excellence and improvement, not merely scale. We iterate to learn quickly from our activities and to improve our programs and ways of working. We further expect our organizational structure to continue to change, given the pace of our activities and programs and our iterative learning process. We see Cornell Tech serving as a model organization for our students, demonstrating the operations of a highly effective, dynamic, information-age organization.
Cornell Tech is looking for a new member of its pioneering Studio team!
Studio is at the heart of how Cornell Tech is reimagining graduate education for the digital age, and is a pillar of the Cornell Tech experience. ‘Studio’ is usually thought of in the context of architecture, design, and art schools—we've adapted studio for engineering and professional education, creating an open environment where students invent, design, build, and share their digital products, getting vital feedback and ideas from now just fellow students and faculty, but practitioners and experts from the NYC tech community, via a variety of formats, including flipped-classroom lectures, crits, sprints, and more.
Students develop products in the Studio that are contemporary and relevant to the real world. This means collaborating with companies, organizations, and individual practitioners to tackle challenges. It means extending the campus beyond our buildings and bringing in expertise, mentorship, and perspectives beyond our students and faculty to help create an education that's in and of today's digital economy. In a given semester, 100s of organizations and practitioners engage with students in a variety of ways, from teaching in the Studio, to offering expert advice and product critique, to mentorship relationships.
The Community Manager is a primary owner of Cornell Tech's extensive network of leading companies, startups, and practitioners in NYC, and actively manages and supports the many practitioners and organizations that participate in Studio each semester. This includes collaborating with companies to develop real-world challenges for our students; helping new practitioner-teachers get up-to-speed in a school environment and launch exciting courses that bring contemporary teachings from the field; and more. Furthermore, as a member of the pioneering Studio team, the Community Manager is always looking for ways to improve and re-invent our engagement programs, developing and executing new strategic plans to keep pushing Cornell Tech's engagement mission to the next level!
