Cornell University recruits and employs the most talented individuals, including dedicated service men and women whose values closely align with the university's. Here, veterans and military personnel will find opportunities to advance the greater good, contribute leadership and technical skills, and take advantage of educational, professional and work/life benefits that are specific to their needs.

The Families and Work Institute has awarded Cornell the 2013 Work Life Legacy Military Award for its support of veterans and military personnel. The institute cited the exceptional work of the Veterans Colleague Network Group (VCNG), which provides services and resources for the university's veteran community.
