Data Driven Decision Making: How Cornell Successfully Opened Campus During a Pandemic

Thursday, February 18 | 8:00 – 10:00 pm EDT

To successfully manage an in-person fall semester during a pandemic, Cornell only had to turn to its own School of Operations Research & Information Engineering for a solution.

This real world challenge found its way into the classroom where students worked alongside faculty to develop the protocols that would allow Cornell to safely open campus.

Join us for an evening with the ORIE faculty and students that led the way in the fight against Covid-19.
