About us

Meet Cornell Alumni Affairs and Development


Cornell Alumni Affairs and Development (AAD) engages alumni, parents, and friends in the life of Cornell and helps 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 digital media 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.

Our mission

To advance Cornell’s mission, we foster lifelong engagement and philanthropy through a commitment of time, talent, and treasure.
