Founded in 1865, Cornell University is uniquely both a privately endowed Ivy League university and a public land-grant institution for New York state. Fourteen colleges and schools span four campuses. The main campus is located on 2,300 acres in upstate New York in Ithaca. Two additional campuses are located in New York City—the Graduate School of Medical Sciences and Cornell Tech. Weill Medical College is located in Doha, Qatar. The university also has formal programs in Rome, Washington, D.C. and Geneva, New York.
Nearly 10,000 faculty and staff work at Cornell, and more than 21,000 students are enrolled in one of 80 undergraduate and 108 graduate fields of study. More than 100 interdisciplinary research centers bring students and faculty together to study and share information on broad scholarly and social topics. As a land-grant college, public service and outreach are critical components of the university’s mission, shaping work in labs and classrooms.
Our work with Cornell University ranges from supporting the development of scientific systems for the study of quantum materials to new technologies that track wide-ranging Amazonian mammals and birds to collect data and plan landscape conservation design.
