How to Submit:

If you want to write without joining the team, you can send in a piece for us to review at our email: theadvocateatcornelluniversity@gmail.com.

We want to encompass a wide range of views–from any political party. We love publishing pieces from Our current active columns are: Criminal Justice, Education, Healthcare, Environment, and Economics. However, we are open to receiving submissions that pertain to other topics, and we are always discussing opening more columns if there is enough interest. We focus on specific pieces of government policy and how they are relevant to youth today and use reliable sources to provide information. Every piece begins with a brief “What You Can Do” section that gives readers short ways to get involved with the topic. This can include things like signing petitions or spreading the word about voter registration. Make sure you do not forget this part of your story!

What We’re Looking For:

We want to review topics that are current and new. Try to write about something that has been relevant in the last month or so and show why the Cornell community should care about it. We love hearing unique perspectives; please feel free to share anything interesting you have to say.
