NUS is heartened to be on board with the Cornell Global Hubs initiative. Cornell's recent interdisciplinary salons included six NUS faculty members engaging with Cornell and other Global Hubs academics. It's exciting to see what lies ahead for our collaboration.

Take the leap of faith. It is so easy to push it off and say that you can do it later, but there is truly no other experience like this—one that is so unique, rewarding, and fun.

The opportunity to work abroad during the summer and do research at another top university is what attracted me to the program.

Broadening the inclusiveness and internationalism of our community here—and cultivating research and learning that emerges from these exchanges—is one of the most exciting potentials of Cornell Global Hubs.

Speaking of Language podcast explores Global Hubs.

Cornell Global Hubs are expanding opportunities, providing infrastructure, and greasing the wheels for faculty, alumni, and students across the university to engage with 20 partner universities in 11 locations.


There’s a place in the world for every Cornell student. Undergraduate students across all colleges and majors will find study abroad programs worldwide to advance their academic and career goals, including opportunities at the new Cornell Global Hubs.   


Academics from some of the world's top institutions will came together in August to brainstorm ideas to create more sustainable cities and communities.

On July 20th, the Cornell Club of Singapore hosted Cornell professors Gustavo Flores-Macias and Sarah Kreps.

"The opportunity to work abroad during the summer and do research at another top university is what attracted me to the program,” said Cornell materials and engineering science student Daniel Bilezikian.


Each Global Hub is unique, but all are grounded in partnerships with strong local universities and based on the principle of mutual benefit and exchange. Cornell is working with Hub partners to develop hands-on projects that promote study and expand the range of academic experiences at home and abroad.
