Message from Dean Michael D. Johnson

Dear alumni and friends,

On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students at the School of Hotel Administration, I write to express concern for the safety of our many alumni and friends who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy. We have been monitoring the news of the destruction caused by the strong winds, rain, and snow from North Carolina to New England to West Virginia. While many cities and communities are heavily damaged, we hope that you and your families and loved ones are safe and out of harm’s way.

Please do not hesitate to ask if there is anything that any of us at Cornell can do to help. Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you.


Michael D. Johnson
Dean & E. M. Statler Professor
