In the Classroom
You'll actively explore the material before you, design a formal line of inquiry and follow it, work with various teams, and get your hands dirty. This may be the Ivy League, but we exist in and learn from the world around us.
In the Field
Service with a Purpose
Public service is a pillar of Cornell academics. It not only enriches the community—it enriches your understanding of how ideas work in the real world.
