What is Cornell University, and what is the Office of the Vice Provost for International Affairs?
Cornell University, unique among peers, is the federal land-grant institution of New York State, a privately endowed university, and a member of the Ivy League. The Office of the Vice Provost of International Affairs (OVPIA)(), under the framework of "Global Cornell," is comprised of internationally engaged units that foster high-impact international research and collaborations, teach and mentor the next generation of global citizens, and support international experiences and cultural exchange for all Cornellians. Our units include Global Hubs, Global Learning (Education Abroad & International Services), Global Operations, Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, and Migrations: A Global Grand Challenge. Together, we make a world of difference.
What are Global Hubs?
The OVPIA is leading a new strategic initiative called Global Hubs. As a pan-university effort, we are collaborating with university leadership and faculty, students, and staff across Cornell's colleges, schools, and programs to develop an innovative model for sustained interdisciplinary collaborations in locations worldwide (). Global Hubs are strategically placed, concentrated pockets of Cornell engagement that connect the entire university with strong international peer institutions and their communities, countries, and regions. No two Hubs will be identical, but they will all share Cornell's academic distinction, educational verve, and civic responsibility-under the umbrella of One Cornell. There will be approximately 15 Global Hubs in the portfolio and, in some cases, multiple institutional partners in one location. More than 200 staff and researchers at Cornell have expressed an interest in engaging in the Hubs, and we are growing a similar cohort at partner institutions. Student mobility will anchor these partnerships, and we anticipate hundreds of outgoing and incoming students to participate in a semester-, summer-, and short-term study and research..
