Cornell welcomes you...

As a person who has served or is currently serving in the military, ROTC, the Reserves or National Guard, you bring a unique perspective to our university. Whether you enter Cornell University as a student, staff or faculty member, you have much to offer Cornell, and Cornell has much to offer you.

I recognize that your military service is an important step along your life and career path. The supportive and caring environment at Cornell offers the perfect place to build on the skills and experiences of your military service while you pursue your aspirations. Cornell is proud to participate in the GI Bill and is a Yellow Ribbon institution.

We offer support for our veterans through many departments and benefits from active involvement of our Veterans Colleague Network Group. We aim to provide you with the resources you need to be successful at Cornell and are proud that you are part of the Cornell community.

Cornell University, President
