One of the benefits studying at Cornell is the diversity you will find among its population of 17,000 students, with representatives from 130 countries. You are likely to meet an American student who has completed five years of tropical agricultural work in Togo, West Africa, and to find a classmate who held a ministry post in Jakarta, Indonesia, before enrolling in the graduate degree program. CRP students are also activists and student organizations enrich the educational program.
