Cornell's Student Body Votes to Save Dutch and Swedish, But not Yet the Marcellus Shale
Cornell's Student Assembly, the voice of the undergraduate student population voted overwhelmingly in favor of voicing its opposition to the university's recent decision to cancel Dutch and Swedish.
The Assembly went as far as to say they would be willing to fund the programs should private fundraising efforts come up short.
The assembly was also presented a resolution that would dictate how Cornell should move forward with leasing its lands under the Marcellus shale out to developers.
The resolution would ask that a diverse committee sign off on leasing out the shale before Cornell were allowed to take action. That resolution was tabled until the next meeting.
