IMPACTS At the end of its first year, the PRYDE Scholars program is already impacting not only the students but also the researchers and practitioners with whom they are working. Through this program, PRYDE is engaging some of the brightest minds in the College of Human Ecology and exposing them to the importance of translational research. This program also provides PRYDE-affiliated researchers with undergraduate research assistants who are passionate about connecting research and practice, and creates pathways to connect students with CCE 4-H programs across the state.

After their two years with PRYDE, our Scholars will leave Cornell prepared to embody the mission of the College of Human Ecology; to improve lives by exploring and shaping human connections to natural, social, and built environments. They will use their training in translational research in a wide variety of careers and draw on their experiences of researchpractice partnerships to improve the lives of youth and communities.

“[PRYDE] has easily been one of the greatest opportunities I’ve had in my college career. I’m so grateful for this class and all the opportunities we’ve been afforded.” Saige Connor PRYDE Scholar
