About the Civic Engagement Office

The Civic Engagement Office (CEO) facilitates hundreds of service and leadership opportunities for students across Cornell. A student working with the CEO might chair a planning committee for Cornell’s nationally-recognized Relay for Life, complete an intense week of service at sites across the country through an Alternative Spring Break trip, or connect with one of many local volunteer opportunities in the greater Cornell community. 

No matter how students become involved, the CEO is dedicated to helping them follow their passions, build their skills, and prepare for a lifetime of service and leadership. Inspired by this mission, reflecting the values of the college, and positioned at the forefront of thematic trends in higher education, the CEO has developed into a vibrant and growing component of the co-curricular experience of Cornell.
