Global Public Voices

Launched in 2020, Global Public Voices promotes Cornell faculty’s public engagement in national debates and around the world.

Global Public Voices addresses worldwide challenges by elevating the expertise and voices of a diverse set of thought leaders—scholars, thinkers, and makers who can see new solutions and envision a more just and equitable future.
