KCRG-TV9 reports on new Cornell calendar

Cornell College was featured in a story, “Cornell College moving to 10 blocks amid Coronavirus pandemic,” on KCRG May 7, 2020.

The 10-block plan means that if students need to delay the start of their academic year due to the pandemic, they will still have many options to graduate in four years.  In addition, students can choose to take all 10 blocks and accelerate progress toward a three-year degree.

“What we know from students right now and their families is that they want flexibility, minimum disruption, and perhaps most importantly they want certainty that they’re going to graduate in four years,” Cornell College President Jonathan Brand told KCRG. “That they don’t have to put their lives on hold for a period of time.”
