Cornell’s Northeast Corridor (NEC) office is the urban location of the Division of Alumni Affairs and Development. The NEC team serves all alumni, parents and friends between greater Boston and Washington, DC. With over 97,000 Cornellians living in this region alone, almost half of the global alumni population calls the northeast corridor home. Through supporting regional clubs, producing events and facilitating philanthropy to the university, the NEC is the gateway to participation in the region.
