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.
A key differentiator of the master's degree programs at Cornell Tech is that traditional discipline-based fundamentals of each program are complimented with the practically-oriented, multi-disciplinary, team-based curriculum, required of all students in all programs. In the Studio, students learn and practice user-driven tech industry development processes by creating prototypes of digital-enabled products and services. Working in multi-program teams, students engage with end-users, companies, nonprofits and government agencies in creating prototypes of digitally-enabled solutions to real-world challenges, getting vital feedback and ideas from fellow students as well as faculty and practitioners from the NYC tech community, via a variety of formats, including flipped-classroom lectures, crits, scrums, sprints, and more.
The Studio Operations Lead supports the execution of Cornell Tech's Studio program, working with the Studio Director to manage, scale, and improve the many moving parts of this program.
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 weekly sessions in the Studio, to one-off meetings for expert advice, to mentorship relationships. The Studio Operations Lead supports and continually improves this experience, working proactively with students, student teams, staff, faculty, and practitioners. As a key connector on campus, the Studio Operations Lead will develop significant working relationships with NYC's leading companies, startups, and practitioners.
The Studio Operations Lead works closely with the faculty and administration of Cornell Tech, reports directly to the Studio Director, who owns the management and infrastructure of the Studio, and is a part of the team under the Chief Practice Officer, who is responsible for the Studio overall.
