Mission Statement

Cornell University invites all alumni, parents, and friends to participate in the worldwide university community!

Consistent with the core values of community, education, and service, the initiatives of each club will provide alumni, parents, and friends with meaningful opportunities to:

  • Strengthen their knowledge of and ties to the university;
  • Maintain and grow friendships with Cornellians;
  • Continue the process of life-long learning; and
  • Serve the university, other alumni, students, and the community at large.

In-Person Events

  • Clubs and associations are approved to return to in-person events. To assist your group in planning, the Alumni Affairs staff developed guidelines that ensure the health and safety of our alumni community. Please work with your Regional staff contact and submit all events through the event detail form.

  • The event coordinator must submit an Event Detail Form for each event hosted or sponsored by a Cornell Club or Association. The information on this form is required for insurance purposes and inclusion on the events calendar.
