For Partners

Cornell Global Hubs connect all of Cornell—faculty, staff, students, and international alumni—with leading peer universities and their communities, countries, and regions. Hubs build the kind of strong, long-term international relationships that create understanding, meaningful results, and lasting change.

World-Class Partnerships with Cornell

For University Partners

Global Hubs university partnerships are reciprocal. Faculty and students across our Hubs join a vibrant network of transnational research and learning opportunities, partnering with Cornell and other Hubs locations.


Faculty from Hubs partners can connect with global faculty who share their interests, develop new collaborations in interdisciplinary research theme areas, and apply for seed funding for joint research.

Students from Hubs partners can study on exchange for a semester or year at one of Cornell’s 15 colleges and schools. Our Office of Global Learning supports students as they explore campus, helping them select classes and connect with the department where they will study. Students from partner institutions can also participate in faculty research and plan short-term visits to campus during winter and summer.

For Public and Private Sector Partners

Cornell regularly works with NGOs, governmental agencies, research institutes, and other organizations worldwide to advance research and student engagement. Our partnerships with the public and private sectors will deepen at Global Hubs locations, building community connections for the global public good.
