Cornell has had a global outlook from its very beginning. Students from Russia, Brazil, England, and Canada were among our earliest graduates. Cornell students, faculty, and alumni travel the world, searching for new knowledge and sharing their expertise. Many work in communities across the globe helping to affect real-world change. You can too.
Through courses, campus life, library resources, and programs, you can learn about the global opportunities Cornell provides. The world awaits.
