The Cornell Parents Committee


The Cornell Parents Committee is comprised of talented and dedicated parents from around the world. Committee members make a direct impact on the student experience at Cornell and play an important role in serving as ambassadors to other Cornell parents. The committee accomplishes its mission through fundraising and outreach efforts, including soliciting unrestricted gifts from other parents to support and maintain Cornell’s excellence. The most successful committee members have previous experience with fundraising and are comfortable asking others for gifts, strongly embrace the annual fund message and mission, and are at ease acting as an ambassador for Cornell. Committee members also act as mentors to students by offering internships and hiring graduating students. Service on the Parents Committee provides parents with the opportunity to interact with members of the faculty, the deans and the senior leadership of the university.
