The Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies is Cornell's hub for research, teaching, and learning about international issues. Founded in 1961 and based on the first floor of Uris Hall, the center provides a home to ten area studies and thematic programs. Two of these – the Southeast Asia Program and South Asia Program – are U.S. Department of Education Title VI National Resource Centers (NRCs).

The Einaudi Center and its programs make research and travel grants to faculty and students; organize conferences, workshops, seminars, roundtables, debates, lectures, and other events; sponsor faculty fellows, postdoctoral fellows, visiting scholars, and practitioners in residence; produce books, e-books, journals, working papers, and other publications; offer undergraduate and graduate minors; manage a doctoral dissertation proposal development program; spearhead research initiatives within and beyond the university; provide materials and assistance to educators across New York State; and support interdisciplinary working groups that tackle complex issues of global concern.

The center also works with other programs on campus to internationalize the university's research, teaching, and outreach agenda. More than 800 faculty members collaborate with the center and its programs.
