Campus On A Hill (COAH)

Campus on a Hill is a group that facilitates the networking and collaboration between Christian Fellowships and local Churches at Cornell and the Ithaca community towards the continual work of seeing God’s name proclaimed and glorified on Cornell’s campus.


International Justice Mission

The International Justice Mission is a human rights agency that rescues victims of violence, sexual exploitation, slavery and other forms of violent oppression. As a chapter, Cornell IJM works to educate and raise awareness in our community, as well as to fundraise. IJM is a Christian-based organization, but all who are interested are welcome to take part in our meetings.


The Cornell Claritas

The Cornell Claritas is a student thought periodical that aims to motivate all members of the Cornell community to think about Christianity as it intersects with all aspects of life.  Claritas hosts  open business meetings on Tuesday afternoons, while also co-hosting with Chesterton House a conversation series with Christian faculty about faith, vocation, culture, and more. The Claritas is affiliated with similar publications on other campuses through the Augustine Collective, and student editors are invited to participate in the Augustine Collective's amazing annual retreat in January! The predecessor to Claritas was Translations Magazine (see previous publications below). For more information, contact Justin McGeary (
