Initiatives & outreach

Speaker series

The Einaudi Center and the area studies and thematic programs organize more than 200 lectures, debates, roundtables, and seminars each year.

Working groups

The Einaudi Center supports multidisciplinary teams of scholars working collaboratively on complex issues of global concern. Of special interest are issues that are normally considered technical, but where the stakes for ordinary citizens are high, and where non-technical perspectives are critically important.

Cornell Research Academy of Development, Law, and Economics (CRADLE)

CRADLE is intended to connect faculty and students at Cornell with leading thinkers in academia, government, international development, civil society, and the private sector in a discussion of issues at the intersection of economic development and the law.

Ecological Learning Collaboratory

The Ecological Learning Collaboratory explores the learning, dissemination, and innovation of ecological strategies in the development of just and sustainable food and healing systems rooted in place.

Cornell International Education Network

The Einaudi Center supports a multi-pronged, campus-wide effort to make Cornell a top 10 global university. The center hosts the Cornell International Education Network (CIEN), which provides a forum for staff and faculty members involved in international education at Cornell, including those who work with the international students and scholars and U.S. students who study abroad.

International faculty database

This searchable database provides information about Cornell faculty whose research or teaching interests engage with global issues.

Outreach for educators

The Einaudi Center's outreach activities support faculty in community colleges, four-year School of Education institutions, and teachers in K-12 schools who wish to expand their international offerings. We offer professional development opportunities, as well as resources for educators including a lending library, teaching materials, afterschool language programs, cultural programs, and an outreach newsletter.
