About Human Ecology

The mission of the College of Human Ecology is to improve lives by exploring and shaping human connections to natural, social, and built environments.

Faculty, students, and staff explore the human dimensions of social and natural sciences, design, nutrition and health, public policy, society, family, community, and other realms-all in pursuit of knowledge to make the world a better place. Using Cornell's far-reaching extension network and the college's translational research methods, we deliver our findings directly to communities and families, ensuring that our work reaches those who need it most.
