TIP is a program of the Cornell Public Service Center and is under the advisement of Joyce Muchan. 

TIP trains multilingual Cornell students to serve as volunteer translators and interpreters for emergency and non-emergency situations. TIP's services are free for the community and are not meant to replace community members' linguistic capabilities. TIP advocates for the use of local language communities as the program would best be serving its mission statement through the empowerment of local communities.

In regards to agency use of the password-protected database, the Translator-Interpreter Program (TIP) has specific protocol that agencies must follow when using the database. Agencies must attend an Agency Training Session in order to review the protocol the program requires and to register as a TIP-affiliated agency. If you would like attend a training session to register as an agency, please contact TIP at translator@cornell.edu to discuss scheduling.

For registered agencies, the following is a link to TIP's password-protected volunteer database:
