Demonstrated in projects identified, designed, and implemented in collaboration with partner communities, the spirit of Engaged Cornell is contributing to solutions seeking to overcome some of the world’s biggest challenges. By embracing the Engaged Cornell state-of-mind, students become global citizens leading social change and the university inspires a new generation of teaching and research at Cornell and beyond.
