The ILR School is proud to partner with Cornell's David M. Einhorn Center for Community Engagement in our efforts to enhance and expand the engaged learning opportunities available for ILR students. This school-wide initiative builds on ILR’s long-standing commitment to improving the lives of workers and advancing progressive outcomes for communities, unions and organizations. The cornerstone of this initiative is ILR’s new Office of Engaged and Experiential Programs. The office coordinates an array of engaged and experiential learning and research opportunities, and seeks to create new engaged experiences for ILR students.

“We share the Einhorn Center’s overarching goal of having all students participate in a community- engaged learning opportunity during their time at Cornell. I believe that through our collaboration with the Einhorn Center, and with the support of this comprehensive grant, we will be able to achieve this ambitious goal by 2025.”

– Kara Lombardi, assistant dean for Student Experience and Wellbeing
