Cornell Club of Washington Annual Dinner

Featuring Keynote Speaker Susan Hills Murphy, '73, Ph.D. '94, Vice President Emerita, Cornell University Student and Academic Services.

Registration now available!

You are cordially invited to join us for an excellent meal & conversation with fellow Cornellians at our Annual Dinner.

CCW is thrilled to welcome Vice President Emerita, Susan H. Murphy, B.A. Arts & Sciences '73, Ph.D, '94, as our keynote speaker. This event is a must - attend on your calendar this year - Washington DC is the final stop for Dr. Murphy, prior to returning to Ithaca and her retirement in June.

A 1973 graduate of the Cornell College of Arts & Sciences, Dr Murphy returned to Cornell in 1978 after earning her Masters degree at Montclair State College and Stanford University. She worked for 16 years in Admissions and Financial Aid at Cornell, including 9 years as Dean of Admissions. While serving in that role, Susan completed her Ph.D. in Educational Administration at Cornell and subsequently was appointed to her immediate past positions, as Vice President of Student and Academic Services, serving for more than 20 years, until her retirement on June 30, 2015. She has touched virtually every area of the Cornell experience, including Student Health, Residential Life, and Athletics, among many others. Susan remains in the Division of Alumni Affairs and Development, assisting with fundraising & alumni engagement, through June 2016.

During this special evening, CCW President, Grace Jean, '00 will preside over a brief CCW Business Meeting, including the Annual Report, presentation of the Bondareff and Best Program Awards, and recognition of the outgoing/election of incoming Board Members.

The Army Navy Club on Farragut Square (ANC) will serve as our venue. Since its beginning, the ANC has been "home away from home" for the most illustrious names in America's military history.
