Cornell’s Adult University: Education Vacations


Cornell’s Adult University (CAU) offers weeklong noncredit courses on campus in the summer for adults and families. During the fall, winter, and spring, CAU offers weekend seminars and longer domestic programs as well as international study tours. Developed and led by distinguished members of the Cornell faculty, all programs are inspired by the conviction that one of the roles of a great university is to provide a bridge between traditional formal education and informal, noncredit study.
