About us


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.
