Cornell's Faculty of Computing and Information Science (CIS) engages with every college at Cornell and shares the information revolution with every Cornell student to invent the fields of tomorrow. The mission of CIS is to integrate computing and information science--its ideas, technology, and modes of thought--into every academic field.

Utilizing the $25 million Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation grant from 2006, CIS will build the 100,000-square-foot William H. Gates Hall on the current site of the Hoy North parking lot, on Campus Road across from Barton Hall. The building will bring together several units of CIS in a collaborative working and learning environment.

This event was part of the Trustee Council Weekend 2010 activities.
