About us

Meet Cornell Alumni Affairs and Development


We, the staff of Cornell Alumni Affairs and Development (AAD), are dedicated to engaging alumni, parents, and friends in the life of Cornell and helping Cornellians connect with one another and with the university throughout their lives. Our leaders and staff, together with more than 15,000 volunteers, produce hundreds of events on campus, across the nation, and around the world; help Cornellians build community in many ways; and raise funds in support of the university’s mission.

With a long, distinguished history, our division remains one of the strongest and most vibrant university alumni affairs and development programs anywhere.

Alumni, parents, and friends: find your community

Your Cornell connection is for life! Let us help you network, grow, and engage.
