Engaged Cornell is a new and evolving university initiative that is establishing community engagement in teaching, learning, and research as a hallmark of the Cornell experience. Colleges and specific units across the university provide the educational outreach functions for Cornell University's role as New York State's Land Grant University and in support of its public engagement strategy. Administered by the Office of Engagement Initiatives (OEI), the New York State Partnership Liaison is charged with supporting units throughout Cornell to facilitate access to statewide community-engaged learning, service and research experiences for students, faculty, and staff.
The NYS Partnership Liaison will be based on the Ithaca campus and will maintain vibrant linkages between extension/outreach units and OEI. The Partnership Liaison will play a key role in ensuring a high quality of student participation in Engaged Cornell experiences across the state and streamlining operational processes to facilitate this involvement. The liaison will work to expand the capacity and interest of faculty from all of Cornell's colleges and campuses to develop or enhance community-engaged teaching and research that involve a broad set of New York communities, with an emphasis on projects with strong student involvement. The Liaison's responsibilities include deepening and developing linkages between campus and extension and with other organizations to expand opportunities for community engagement across the state.
As OEI continues to expand its work to involve students in the public engagement mission of Cornell, the Partnership Liaison will contribute to the development of quality processes and procedures (e.g. off-campus logistics and support) that optimize these community engagement programs. The NYS Partnership Liaison will work under the supervision of the Executive Director of the Office of Engagement Initiatives.
