For Faculty

Cornell Global Hubs are your point of entry to a world of high-impact opportunities.

Global Hubs put you at the center of a vibrant network of transnational research and teaching. At Hubs, your international work is supported and seamless—so you can focus on developing your research, building new collaborations, and innovating in the classroom.

Global Grand Challenges Survey and Town Hall

Following the recent Global Grand Challenges Symposium, we want to continue the conversation and would appreciate your thoughts on possible themes for the next Global Grand Challenge by completing this brief survey. Whether or not you attended the symposium, please add your voice.

Additionally, Global Cornell will host a virtual town hall for Cornell faculty and staff on December 8 from 2–3 ET for further feedback—register now.

World-Class Collaborations

At Hubs locations around the world, you’ll find research opportunities in a range of interdisciplinary thematic areas, partners who share your interests, and joint seed funding to support new and long-term collaborations.

Consider leading a group of students abroad for a semester or short-term immersive experience based at a Hub. Or teach a border-crossing global course with faculty from a Hub institution. Cornell faculty leads and counterparts at each site help you identify and connect with potential research collaborators and co-teachers.

Connected at Cornell

Global Hubs are a global extension of the Cornell community. These strategically placed concentrations of Cornell presence connect the entire university with international peer institutions and their communities, countries, and regions.

Each Hub partners Cornellians—faculty, staff, students, and alumni—with one or more universities, regional organizations, and local people. It’s the kind of sustained engagement that creates real relationships and real change.

Start your Hubs engagement by exploring locations and reaching out to the faculty lead in your region of interest.
