Cornell Project 2Gen is administered through the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research in the College of Human Ecology. We work with various partners to achieve our mission.


Cornell Partners


CaRDI is a group of research and outreach faculty and professionals working in critical areas of community development, including the Rural Schools Association, a New York organization which works to amplify and address the needs of schools within small and rural communities within New York.


Cornell Cooperative Extension, with locations in every county in New York State, is a 2Gen community partner that helps with project design and implementation.


We partner with the Cornell Institute for Public Affairs to connect graduate students and the community, and develop new partnerships that connect research, policy and practice in the area of family well-being.  


Engaged Cornell advances Cornell’s mission through community-engaged discovery and learning. It supports research and education opportunities that occur in partnership with communities and that contribute to solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges. It aims to inspire a new generation of teaching and research at Cornell and beyond.
