Alumni Association

The purpose of the Cornell ILR Alumni Association is to promote the interests and welfare of Cornell University’s ILR School, and its alumni, faculty and students. In fulfilling its mission of service, the Association also provides opportunities for alumni to keep up with the latest issues in the field and to form rewarding social and professional contacts with other alumni.

The Association provides a critical link between the alumni and the school and is supported exclusively by member dues and volunteer support. Whether pursuing a traditional ILR career or another path, the mission of the ILR School, “Advancing the World of Work,” touches all ILR alumni. Don’t miss the opportunity to be involved – the ILR Alumni Association plays an important role in promoting the interests of the School, alumni and students.
