Leading positive change locally and globally
Public engagement is foundational to everything we do as an institution. By contributing to this deep-rooted university commitment, our students, faculty, staff and alumni — Engaged Cornell — are forging community partnerships, solving local and global challenges and creating knowledge to benefit humanity.
Connecting and Enriching Communities
Cornell relies on a robust exchange of ideas with the public to understand local needs, develop and implement solutions, and deepen community capacity. Building upon the unique strengths of our partners, our public engagement includes extension, outreach, policy briefings, solutions-oriented institutes and much more.
