The Employee Assembly at Cornell is committed to ensuring staff member viewpoints are a shared priority in university decision making, and promoting a sense of belonging in the life of the university.

The EA consists of 28 staff members from across the Ithaca and Geneva campuses whose mission is to ensure collaboration with key university stake-holders, advocate for all staff interests and improve the staff experience through regular engagement at every level of the university. Working closely with members of the administration, the EA encourages a higher visibility for employees as community members, and more equal participation with faculty and students in the policy-making process.
