Cornell Alumni Affairs and Development (AAD) has a long and distinguished history and remains one of the strongest and most vibrant programs among universities anywhere. We engage alumni, parents, and friends in the life of Cornell and help Cornellians connect with one another throughout their lives.
Working with more than 15,000 volunteers, our leaders and staff produce hundreds of events on campus, around the nation, and across the world. We also connect Cornellians through our robust digital media and raise funds in support of the university’s mission.
To advance Cornell’s mission, we foster lifelong engagement and philanthropy through a commitment of time, talent, and treasure
- We believe that our support of Cornell University as an educational, research, and land-grant institution is imperative for the growth and success of society.
- We believe in the Cornell community’s power to create opportunities for individuals, communities, and the world.
- We believe in the enduring impacts of research and seek to mirror intellectual inquiry, curiosity, enrichment and creativity in our work.
- We believe in giving back and, in turn, seek to use our talents, skills, and resources to inspire others to do the same.
