Who We Are:

As Cornell University's second largest college, with discovery for impact at its core, we work across disciplines to tackle the challenges of our time through equitable, world-renowned research, education and outreach. The questions we probe and the answers we seek focus on three overlapping concerns: natural and human systems; food, energy and environmental resources; and social, physical and economic well-being. The Office of Professional Programs and Extended Learning supports professional graduate students in their academic and personal success by building a community of support around students made up of faculty, staff, peers, alumni and rich resources from across the college and university.
CALS professional degrees are growing to align with existing graduate fields within Cornell, currently including Animal Science, Food Science, Plant Science, Biological and Environmental Engineering, Natural Resources and Landscape Architecture. Our programs emphasize professional development and intellectual investigation for those who aim to leave the world better than they found it, so we seek out those not simply driven to master their discipline, but those who are also passionate about doing so to serve the public good. The CALS Office of Professional Programs and Extended Learning (OPPEL) serves 200-300 full-time graduate students preparing for meaningful careers in corporate, not-for-profit, government and agency positions.
