When it comes to conducting research for the greater good, we spend as much time in the field as possible. It's a practice that makes our questions more relevant, our relationships more meaningful, and our solutions more sustainable.
Public engagement requires an open and constant exchange of ideas and information. Every project is a partnership in gathering local knowledge and applying local, sustainable solutions—no matter where in the world we are working.
The Cornell Land Grant
Land Grant & The Spirit of Public Engagement
As the land-grant institution in New York, we have a special responsibility—unique among the Ivy League—for research and outreach. Our land grant is who we are. And who we are is a community committed to improving the quality of life in New York, the nation, and the world.
