It’s never too early to book a visit. We rely on as much advance time to prepare a successful visit. Cornell faculty hosts are urged to consider the six-year professorial term of Professors-at-Large and the feasibility of scheduled visits (not consecutive years) during that time period. We also try to limit the number of visits of three per semester (by different Professors-at-Large) and give those who schedule first a priority.
