We at Cornell Outdoor Education would like to formally thank everyone for their generous philanthropy and for helping this program to become the largest and most comprehensive collegiate outdoor education program in the country.
Founded in 1972, Cornell Outdoor Education (COE) serves the broad membership of the Cornell community: students and student instructors, faculty and staff, alumni and friends, local community and outside groups. We enhance academic performance and success in the workplace by developing leadership, teamwork and personal achievement through experience-based education in the outdoor environment at Cornell University and around the world. COE uses challenge, adventure, and outdoor experiences, with reflection and analysis, to help individuals and teams learn and grow. COE classes and programs, by complementing academic and classroom offerings, provide students with real world leadership and team opportunities.
Cornell Outdoor Education develops teamwork, leadership, and growth through outdoor experience. We do this by:

Why does Your Support Make a Difference?
Cornell Outdoor Education receives only 15% percentage of its budget directly from the University. The great majority of our funds come from student and participant fees, alumni gifts, and friends of the organization. Each year, more students participate in COE courses. In our efforts to serve every Cornell student, we are constantly expanding our program, which in turn requires additional funding.
