The Engaged Cornell faculty listserv is way for local organizations to connect to a large pool of Cornell faculty. Because research and teaching partnerships are planned well in advance, this resource may be of best use in building relationships with those who share your interests so you may collaborate in the future. The listserv may be useful to find collaborators for data analysis, internship opportunities, community-university partnerships, and other projects.
