Community at Cornell
Communicating and connecting across differences, as well as learning from others’ lived experiences, enables our students to maximize what they gain from their time at Cornell. It also allows them to actively contribute to making Cornell a more open and supportive community and better prepares them for their future in an increasingly interconnected global world. Community at Cornell is a program that all incoming undergraduate students complete in their first year at Cornell.
It has three parts:
- Part 1: An Introduction to Dialogue – a short reading and written reflection assignment.
- Part 2: Connection, Challenge, & Change – three short video modules, each accompanied by one reflection question.
- Part 3: Create Community Across Difference – an interactive, peer-facilitated, small group session.
