The Office of the Assemblies staff is here to provide information, support, guidance, reimbursements, moral support, and (seasonally) hard candy.
The Office of the Assemblies provides administrative support and financial oversight to the Assemblies and their standing committees. We also work to engage constituencies across campus to increase participation in the shared governance process.

Wendy provides direct support to the Student Assembly and the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly, as well as website curation and overall general support. In her spare time, Wendy is Elf Leader for Watkins Glen as part of the Cornell Elves and Backpack Program. She also enjoys spending time with her children and loved ones, random road trips, her inherited love of llamas and the occasional hand or two of 3-card poker. Her kids, biological and Cornell alike, keep her young at heart.
