Student Leadership

We offer opportunities for you to grow as a leader where you live, where you volunteer or work, or where you find connections with others. Make great things happen where it matters most to you.

Lead Where You Live

  • Residence Hall Advisors (RAs) are experienced upper-level students who live in residence halls and help lead the community and mentor other students.
  • Cooperative residences are independent and student-governed
  • Graduate Resident Fellows (GRFs) are graduate students who live in West Campus Houses and give guidance in matters academic and intellectual.

Lead Where You Belong

  • Student organizations number more than 1,000 and are as diverse as Cornell’s student body.
  • Fraternity & Sorority Life centers around living the core principles of leadership, self-governance, integrity, and interpersonal competence.
