 Cornell PGN

Cornell's Premier Professional Development Organization

About PGN


Under the leadership of Sylvia Pekar Arnold, six devoted women initiated PGN at Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois. Since then, PGN has grown into a national organization that prides itself on producing leaders of outstanding value, who are devoted to professionalism, service, and brotherhood.

The Delta Omicron Chapter of Cornell University is one of Cornell's oldest professional development organizations. PGN strives to foster a diverse community that invests in the professional and personal development of its members, who are committed to one another's success. We aim to create well-rounded leaders who enrich the lives of others and their communities. 


Our Values


During the new member education process, individuals will have the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally. Our fine-tuned and robust program is derived from our three most important values: professionality, philanthropy, and community. In our experience, these ingredients comprise the most well-rounded and successful brothers. 


From resume critiques to connecting you with our distinguished alumni, we build your skills from the ground up, with assets you will utilize throughout your professional career. 


Giving back to our local community is an important part of our philosophy, and we pride ourselves on creating and contributing to a variety of philanthropic events each year. 


More than just an organization, we are a group of dedicated and loyal friends built on the foundation of brotherhood that forms relationships which truly last a lifetime.
