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.

My reason for studying abroad was to experience a different culture and to gain a life skill from it. By going to Hong Kong, I was able to pursue Mandarin classes and also experience a very different culture.

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.

While in Europe, I learned about and experienced firsthand the differences in the healthcare systems across nations. I’ve been actively applying my knowledge from abroad to my classes at Cornell. It’s so amazing to approach my learning from multiple perspectives.

Join us for the Global Hubs network meeting in London on October 31 and November 1.

Vice Provost Wendy Wolford explains what sets the Cornell Global Hubs apart. 

Cornell delegation enhances global ties with Global Hubs partner the University of Ghana, tackling education, public health, and climate change, fostering collaboration and cultural exchange.


A delegation from Cornell University visited the University of Ghana Business School to discuss a potential project to be funded by the Master Card Foundation and its mutual benefits for both.


On October 9-10, academics from Queen Mary University of London and Cornell University met on the Queen Mary, Malta campus on the island of Gozo for a workshop on transnational migration.


A Cornell-led project team—with Global Hubs partners in India, the UK, Ghana, and Singapore—has received a two-year $250,000 design grant from the National Science Foundation to bring more comfortable days and nights to homes everywhere.


This summer, Cornell welcomed six PhD students from Imperial College London to the Ithaca and Cornell Tech campuses as part of Imperial's Global Fellows Fund.


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.
