The Cornell Vegan Society (CVS) is an academic society that promotes public understanding of veganism and related ethical, scientific, and social issues. Cornell Vegan Society strives to bring the connection between diet and bioethics, our treatment toward other beings, public health, and the environment into public consciousness.
Vegan philosophy and worldview promote a future in which humans celebrate health while analyzing and examining their inextricable relationship with the ecosystem. Vegans value sentience and empathy as common grounds from which to promote vibrancy in all life. Thus, bioethically-influenced responsible behavior is acted through the non-exploitation of humans, non-human animals, and environmental resources while creating an atmosphere conducive to regeneration and growth.
