Public engagement catalyzes positive change in the world and within ourselves. Cornell's diverse scholars and students address social and environmental issues by partnering with communities to define questions and search for answers.
Public engagement is a process that makes our research questions more relevant, our solutions more sustainable, our relationships more meaningful, and our teaching and learning more effective. It is Cornell's land-grant mission at work.
Cornell's engagement earned national recognition in 2010.
