Without community, there is no community engagement — and there is no Engaged Cornell. Community partners who collaborate with Cornell students, faculty and staff on engaged projects play key roles in defining their communities’ needs and developing sustainable solutions that will benefit their clients, constituents and neighbors.
Defining community in the broadest sense, Engaged Cornell projects include partners large and small, local and international. Community partners can be:
- government offices or programs
- non-governmental organizations
- for-profit organizations
- not-for-profit organizations
- small businesses
- civic groups
- labor unions
- health facilities
- industry leaders
- and more
What do community partnerships look like?
- Demystifying cancer science for cancer patients
- Giving voice to LGBTI refugees in Turkey
- Empowering smallholder coffee growers in Latin America
- Building flood resilient communities in Upstate New York
And you’ll find many other examples throughout this site.
