Cornell has been involved with everything from agriculture to Broadway productions, to space exploration—and a great deal in between. Alumni programs across the United States and overseas create unique experiences that reveal our many connections and highlight the far-reaching influence of our alma mater.
Connect with local Cornell organizations. Reunite with classmates. Get together with other alumni to make a Big Red difference for your community. Learn from faculty visiting your city. Cornell is close to you.
Events are the perfect way to reconnect with the Cornell community. Whether you return to campus for Homecoming and Reunion or find a Big Red party in your own backyard, there's always a Cornell event near your home or even near your travel destinations. Have fun, learn, network, or just reminisce.
Cornell’s alumni network is a quarter-million strong worldwide, and regional Cornell clubs serve a vital role in connecting alumni to each other and to the university. Cornell clubs also engage local communities, extending the university’s impact far beyond campus.
Young Alumni Programs helps keep recent graduates—those who have graduated in the past 10 years—connected with each other and Cornell.
No matter the distance, a Cornellian is a Cornellian for life and we are proud to have alumni in all corners of the globe. Our mission is to help you stay connected with Cornell even after you leave Ithaca and to carry that Big Red Spirit with you everywhere.
We support Cornell’s diverse alumni initiatives and diverse alumni associations. Our efforts center on helping to coordinate the work of our diverse alumni associations, which maintain independent alumni volunteer boards; organizing engagement events; conducting fundraising initiatives to support diversity programs on campus; and growing our dynamic diverse alumni community to further inclusion.
