About the travel program

The Cornell Alumni Association Travel Program has been providing domestic and international group travel opportunities for alumni, parents, and friends of the university for over 40 years. Unlike our sister program, Cornell’s Adult University, we don’t send faculty on our trips. However, your group, if large enough, may be accompanied by a Cornell staff member. You’ll always be accompanied by expert tour directors and local guides. And of course, Big Red conviviality is a hallmark of every trip. Let us manage your logistics so you are free to philosophize, stargaze, photograph, and muse over the experience, all the while enjoying rich conversations with fellow Cornellian travelers of diverse backgrounds and multiple perspectives.

About Scheduling

  • Alumni Affairs books multiple events and travel opportunities each year. Given the complexities of event management and booking, we are unable to avoid all national holidays and holy days as we plan. However, we make every effort to offer our events at different times throughout the year, and to schedule recurring events in different time frames year over year, to ensure the greatest opportunity for people of all backgrounds to attend at some time.

Meet our travel partners

We partner with award-winning travel operators to share an exciting variety of culturally immersive opportunities—from cruises to land journeys, from active adventures to relaxing vacations. In your own words, our operators are “experienced,” “trusted experts,” “so friendly,” and “professional, helpful, and exceptionally service-oriented.”
