From its founding in 1945, the ILR School has offered students an array of diverse opportunities for curricular and co-curricular engaged learning. A new partnership with the Einhorn Center will help formalize and enhance those opportunities through the creation of the ILR Office of Engaged and Experiential Programs.
“We are looking forward to working with the Einhorn Center to strengthen ILR’s tradition of engaged learning and make opportunities in community engagement available to even more of our students,” said Alexander Colvin, Ph.D., ’99, ILR’s Kenneth F. Kahn ’69 Dean and Martin F. Scheinman ’75, M.S. ’76, Professor of Conflict Resolution.
The ILR School is the latest undergraduate college at Cornell to be selected for the Engaged College Initiative. Through the initiative, the Einhorn Center provides three-year foundational funding, consultations and training — with the ultimate goal of building a long-term collaborative relationship that advances and sustains community engaged learning within the college and throughout the university.
