Mission Statement

Cornell University invites all alumni, parents, and friends to participate in the worldwide university community, attend events, stay connected to the university, and contribute to the greatness of the university.

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.

We want to make it easy and fun for you to organize with fellow alumni who live all over the world.
