As Cornellians we belong to various alumni communities. Learn about the volunteer lifecycle from theory to practice and share stories in this active learning session. How do you navigate the various memberships you hold from class to identity-based organizations, to regional clubs, and beyond? Where do you find synergy and inspiration? How do you navigate the moments when these “memberships” intersect?
