The Public Service Center is proud to host a variety of initiatives that foster civic engagement opportunities for Cornell alumni.

Cornell Cares Day hosts events in cities across the US and internationally each January and brings alumni together with current students to take part in service activities. 

Cornell Network for Change is a program developed to connect, engage and inspire Cornellians working in the field of social change.  The Network for Change offers regional events and an online portal to view and post community based jobs, internships, events and other opportunities. The Public Service Center works collaboratively with alumni hosts to create networking events. Network for Change provides a terrific forum to meet others interested in the field, and be inspired by the exciting work being completed by Cornellians in communities worldwide! 

Cornell Reunion Whether you are a Public Service Center alum, want to learn about alumni volunteer opportunities, or are just interested in the work of the Public Service Center, be sure to stop by when you are here for reunion.  Come see how the Public Service Center is helping students, faculty, and alumni get involved in communities to create change locally, regionally and nationally!
