Cornell Cooperative Enterprise Program
Strengthening the knowledge and skills of current and future cooperative business leaders.
The Cooperative Enterprise Program (CEP) is an extension program housed in the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, a joint school of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and SC Johnson College of Business.
The CEP strengthens cooperative-structured or “group-action” organizations by providing information and programs to enhance the skills of enterprise leaders and conducts applied research to further develop the cooperative economy and resilience of the communities in which they operate.
Extension & Outreach
We design and deliver programs for present and future cooperative leaders and provide technical assistance to persons launching “group action” organizations.
Research focused on the value of cooperatives as a solution to community and economic development.
Students learn through engaged learning projects, case studies, and networking opportunities with cooperative leaders.
