Past Initiatives

Cornell Municipal Clerks Institute

CMCI is a premium educational opportunity that represents a collaboration of the City and Village Clerks, the Town Clerks Association of the State of New York, New York State Association of Clerks of County Legislative Boards and CaRDI.

Local Agriculture & Land Use Leadership Institute

Working with American Farmland Trust, CaRDI and LEAD-NY, LALULI developed an inspired network of New York leaders engaging local governments to support agriculture. By improving participants' leadership skills and knowledge, the institute worked to increase the effectiveness of local land use leaders in planning, farmland conservation, and agricultural economic development.

CaRDI provides opportunities for faculty and visitors to highlight innovative applied research. We provide venues for community and campus leaders to interact and to develop relationships.
