Potential volunteers fill out an application form. In addition, those who voluntarily engage in working with vulnerable populations (children, people with disabilities, etc.) are invited to accept a review of criminal origin at the expense of Cooperative Extension, to ensure the safety of both our volunteers and the people we serve through our programs. Cornell has two types of organizations: independent and university. The main instructive difference is whether the faculty/staff advisor is a volunteer (independent) or whether the organization is linked to an office or department (university). More information about each type can be found below. Cornell University prohibits any organization from participating in an act or situation that endangers mental or physical health or involves the use of alcohol or drugs or other substances for the purpose of initiation or membership in an organization. See the campus code of conduct below. The ban is considered to be part of the statutes of all organizations registered at Cornell University. The organization agrees that, if it is established that they are involved in behavior in violation of this harassment ban, the type of behavior and all sanctions imposed are publicly reported on the university`s hazing prevention website. The Cornell University Campus Code of Conduct (Title 3, Article II.A.1.f) states: mist another person, regardless of the consent of the person to participate. Hazing means an act that can be considered an explicit or implied condition of admission into a group or organization, membership in a group or organization, or its pursuit of membership in a group or organization (1) may be considered by a reasonable person as a danger to a person`s physical health or as a psychological constraint to a person, (z.B. by degrading, intimidating or degrading treatment,(2) destroys or suppresses public or private property, (3) the consumption of alcohol or drugs or the consumption of other substances too much or (4) against any academic policy.

CCE (Cornell Cooperative Extension) Association volunteers are people who attend CEC activities as casual, electoral, registered or facilitators. Individuals who receive a payment in excess of the costs incurred during the provision of the service (whether cash, property, housing, food, etc.) are not considered voluntary. The IO should not be considered part of the university, nor as part of the university, nor in the name of the university. The IO takes positive steps in all its recruitment, business and other transactions with third parties (for example. B potential members and companies) to explain its relationship with the university. One of these steps is to include the following statement (or a similar statement approved in advance by the university) in letters from the IO and other written documents (excluding intra-university and intra-IO correspondence): “Although this organization has members who are students, Of the teachers or collaborators of Cornell University, the organization is responsible for its own contracts, acts or omissions, regardless of the university.” When implementing legally binding contracts or agreements on behalf of the Organization, the IO contains the following statement, which is initiated and dated by all parties to the contract or any other agreement:”[NAME OF ORGANIZATION], the contracting party to this agreement/document, is an independent student organization and is neither a unit of Cornell University nor a representative of Cornell University for any purposes.
