This is a great opportunity to become part of a small cohort of action-oriented peers and prepare to participate in Cornell’s rich ecosystem of public engagement and social change.

The three-week intensive series includes eight hours of readings and online gatherings, including an orientation, workshops, dialogues and a celebration. Together, participants will:

  • Explore the building blocks of community-engaged learning
  • Prepare for action through readings and dialogue
  • Reflect on their mindset for taking action
  • Explore their social identities
