Tribute to Professor Ted Lowi
One of our founding fathers, Ted Lowi was instrumental in conceiving and establishing the Cornell in Washington program. He was a strong advocate of the program with Cornell administrators, faculty and students and was an integral presence during its infancy in the early 1980s. Due to his efforts, Cornell was a pioneer in Washington semester programs. CIW has provided academic courses, internships and other opportunities in Washington DC continuously every semester and summer since its founding, creating a network of over 4,000 alumnae across the country and beyond. The continued vitality of CIW and accolades it receives from students each semester is one of the enduring legacies of its founder, Ted Lowi. The entire CIW staff and faculty is honored to carry forth his vision and legacy.
