Cornell Pride

How are we affecting the lives of our students and our community in positive ways?

This is the foundation of transforming lives: creating positive change in our students and our community. Several times a year, Vice President Ryan Lombardi presents highlights of transformative moments, programs, and services to the Board of Trustees Committee on Student Life. These presentations are a way to celebrate the powerful work, relationships, and creativity that are central to being a part of SCL.
