The Commons is a repository for action-oriented research created and maintained by Partnership for the Public Good and Cornell in Buffalo. This hub of knowledge, ideas, and tools for citizen engagement is a modern expression of a democratic ideal — a shared resource in which every member of the community has an equal interest.
Cornell in Buffalo is an engaged learning center that facilitates the interchange of applied knowledge and resources between Cornell University and the Buffalo, NY community. Comprised of Cornell’s ILR School, the Worker Institute, High Road Fellowships, Cornell Cooperative Extension, and Partnership for the Public Good, Cornell in Buffalo is located in Buffalo’s historic Market Arcade building.
Since 2007, the Partnership has produced action-oriented research, policy, and tools dedicated to effecting lasting, positive change in Buffalo Niagara. Created with the help of educators, students, volunteers, interns, and independent researchers, this rich body of reports, policy briefs, and fact sheets can be found here in the Buffalo Commons.
