The Power of the Partnership
Partnership is essential to Cornell’s creative and efficient approach to interdisciplinary collaboration to advance the university’s mission of rigorous scholarship, pioneering research, and public engagement. Cornell’s 14 colleges and schools, more than 100 interdisciplinary research centers and related groups propel the development of new technologies, the creation of new knowledge, and the search from different perspectives for sustainable solutions to some of the world’s most vexing problems.
The Office of University Corporate and Foundation Relations (UCFR) is your access point to learn how you can partner with Cornell faculty and students who are at the leading edge of discovery, research, and academic excellence. Embedded within the Division of Alumni Affairs & Development, we are always connecting with Cornell alumni, parents, and friends who are leaders of corporations, foundations and other organizations to develop powerful partnerships.
