There is no community engagement without the community, and there are many ways partners can connect with the Einhorn Center and with Cornell more broadly. Community partners collaborate with faculty on research projects, host student volunteers, employ Community Work Study students or interns, engage through course-based projects and more. Activities might be one-time opportunities, semester-long projects or multi-year collaborations.
What do all of these partnerships have in common?
They include Cornell students and community partners working together. Many also include faculty, staff or alumni.
Community partners are co-educators, sharing their expertise and experience with the university community.
They combine the interests and goals of all involved, so projects are collaborative and mutually beneficial.
