Cornell University Cornell Brooks Public Policy

Cornell Program in Infrastructure Policy

Educating the next generation of infrastructure leaders

The Cornell Program in Infrastructure Policy (CPIP) in the Cornell Jeb E. Brooks School of Public Policy is focused on improving the delivery, maintenance, and operation of physical infrastructure. This is accomplished through dedicated teaching, research, and outreach efforts in infrastructure policy. A key focus is on infrastructure funding and financing. CPIP coordinates scholars across multiple disciplines both inside and outside of Cornell University who share an interest in public policies impacting infrastructure. CPIP develops and disseminates research relevant to those policies. CPIP collaborates with partners in the public, private, and non-profit sectors to achieve those goals.

  • Educate the next generation of infrastructure leaders and professionals at both the undergraduate and graduate levels
  • Coordinate an active global network of researchers in infrastructure policy
  • Disseminate research findings through conferences policy briefs, media availability, and other on-line outreach efforts
  • Maintain a web presence dedicated to global infrastructure policy issues
