Annual Kessler Scholars Collaborative Summer Convening

Annual Kessler Scholars Collaborative Summer Convening

This summer, on the beautiful campus of Cornell University, Kessler Scholars program staff from 16 colleges and universities will gather for the annual Kessler Scholars Collaborative Summer Convening.

At the Summer Convening, Kessler Scholars campus partners will be together for shared learning, goal setting, and community building.

Partner institutions should plan to send 1-2 representatives who are directly involved in the day-to-day implementation of the Kessler Scholars Program. Please contact Gail Gibson at if you have questions about who from your institution should attend or how travel costs for this event are shared between campus partners and the Collaborative.

To register, please complete this registration form by Monday, April 3rd.

The Collaborative has reserved a room block at the Canopy by Hilton in Downtown Ithaca and will coordinate room reservations for all attendees based on information provided in the registration form.

More detailed information regarding the Convening agenda, transportation options, lodging confirmation, and other helpful tips will be sent via email and posted in the Campus Partners Hub at in early May.

For questions about logistics, please contact Christie Bacon at

It’s an exciting time for the Collaborative, with 10 partners launching Kessler Scholars programs this fall and all partner campuses welcoming new cohorts of Kessler Scholars–more than 400 incoming first-year students in all. There is much to discuss and celebrate. We look forward to seeing you there!
