Cornell University
Ithaca, NY

Challenging, visionary, international, beloved.

With 13,500 undergraduates and 6,000 graduate students, Cornell University is the largest and youngest university in the Ivy League. Its campus includes 14 colleges and schools: seven undergraduate units and four graduate and professional units in Ithaca; two medical graduate and professional units in New York City, and one in Doha, Qatar.

Cornell is a major research university with strengths in the life sciences, physical sciences, humanities, and social sciences. Faculty members work in collaborative, multidisciplinary teams to extend the frontiers of knowledge in diverse and numerous fields of study.

As a land-grant institution, Cornell applies research findings to improve the lives of the people of New York State and the world. Its innovative programs address issues that include human nutrition, health and safety, disease prevention, youth development, agriculture, animal health, environmental quality, sustainable energy, green design and construction, food safety, urban and regional planning, law, labor relations, immigration, economic policy, community development, and more.

Since its beginnings, Cornell University has educated students without regard to race, gender, religion, nationality, or wealth—in an academic community where all forms of knowledge are explored. Cornell was one of the first co-educational institutions in the East and one of the first to admit students of color. This egalitarian and practical vision of higher education, revolutionary when the university was founded in 1865, still informs Cornell’s guiding principles in the 21st century.

Cornell University is dedicated to its original mission of accessibility and opportunity, outreach, and public service.
