Executive and Professional Programs

Once you’re out in the work world, you may be interested in the short, high-level executive education programs that SCE presents on campus, online, and in locations worldwide. These courses are taught by Cornell faculty and distinguished leaders in many fields and provide opportunities to hone skills, increase effectiveness, stay abreast of changes in the work world, and network with colleagues. Programs also can be designed to respond to the specific needs and interests of corporations, professional societies, and other groups. For information, visit, email, call (607) 255-7259, or write to Professional Studies, B20 Day Hall, Ithaca, NY 14853.

Outreach Programs

The School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions (SCE) actively supports a number of programs and activities that serve our regional communities and beyond. Among these are programs that offer employees, retirees, and area residents an opportunity to study at Cornell at little or no cost (see the Visitor’s Noncredit Program); free summer events for area residents, visitors, and the campus community; the Cornell Prison Education Program; a free college fair; and the Veterans Summer Bridge Program.

In addition, SCE collaborates with eCornell and the nonprofit National Education Equity Lab to offer The Cornell University–National Equity Lab program for high school students. This effort provides students in underserved communities the opportunity to enroll in credit classes while also gaining the confidence to recognize they can excel in college, including in the Ivy League.
