The Cornell Student Experience Initiative, or CSEI, is a collaborative, cross-campus project that creates digital applications to make it easier for students to find and participate in Cornell programs. These applications will also help staff more effectively support, advise, and mentor students. 

The project is a partnership that includes the Office of the Provost, the colleges and schools, the Division of Student and Campus Life, and the Office of Academic Affairs, in collaboration with the Office of the Chief Information Officer.

The overarching goal of the Cornell Student Experience Initiative (CSEI) is to create a personalized, integrated, and coherent student experience by providing digital applications that help students explore and engage in the wealth of opportunities available to them.

Our vision has three main components:

  • Service tools to help advisors and staff more effectively support, advise, and mentor students.
  • Discovery tools that will make it easier for students to find and participate in Cornell programs both on and off campus (scholarships, international experiences, research, engaged learning).
  • Analytical tools to help university leaders better understand the student experience, so they know what is working and areas for improvement.
