Student Activities

Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) provide opportunities outside the classroom for Cornish students to participate in educational, intellectual, interdisciplinary and cultural events and/or services to their members or the college. We encourage students at Cornish to join or form RSO to share mutual interests. If you are interested in helping to develop and participate in such groups, contact us.


Student Conduct

The Office of Student Life oversees the conduct process for students who may have violated the Student Code of Conduct. To report an alleged conduct violation, including violations of the academic integrity policy, please complete a reporting form accessed via Compass. For additional information, please read the Student Code of Conduct located in the Student Handbook or contact the Dean of Student Affairs.

Student Government

The Office of Student Life provides advising support to the student government, along with a faculty co-advisor. There is currently a task force of students convened to reimagine the student government structure at Cornish. For more additional information, contact advisor Kaitlyn Vallance.
