Engage underrepresented alumni to celebrate diversity and pave the way to future giving.

Created in 2006, Cornell Mosaic is the lead advisory organization of Cornell’s diverse alumni communities. Cornell Mosaic collaborates with and serves several identity-based alumni communities under one centralized umbrella, and it’s continuing to build upon already-strong participation rates.

In 2017, an exclusive evening with Cornell faculty and alumni experts at the National Museum of African American History and Culture sold out within six hours of opening online registration. One-thousand people were waitlisted!

Join us for this webcast and hear from Cornell’s director of diversity alumni programs who will showcase Cornell Mosaic and give you advice on how to start similar programming on your campus. We’ll discuss how data can fuel your programming, and we’ll share sample programming and events.
