When Cornell Tech opened on Roosevelt Island in 2017, we joined a community of thousands of very involved and caring people who we are proud to call our neighbors. We were delighted to join a community of over 35 nonprofit and volunteer organizations on the island who work hard every day to improve life on Roosevelt Island — many of whom have become our partners and work with us on a regular basis.

Whether engaging with island youth, older adults, people with disabilities, sustainability advocates, the arts community, island governance, or other community activists, Cornell Tech extends its mission of improving the connection between people and technology to the Roosevelt Island community. In the true land grant tradition, we aim to broadly apply the expertise and resources of Cornell for lasting impact on this wonderful community.
