Cornell University (CU) was founded in 1865; its first president, A.D. White, studied the great universities of his time to implement Ezra Cornell’s vision of an inclusive and academically diverse institution. Cornell is located in the heart of New York’s Finger Lakes region, with its beautiful lakes, waterfalls, rolling hills, farmland, vineyards, and state parks.

A prominent educational historian once called Cornell “the first American university”; CU represents a distinctive mix of eminent scholarship and democratic ideals. Founded as both a private university and the land-grant institution of New York State, this distinctive blend of public and private colleges and programs continues to reflect a heritage of egalitarian excellence, making Cornell the most the most educationally diverse university in the Ivy League.

The Chief administrator at Cornell University is President Jeffrey Sean Lehman. Cornell has an enrollment of approximately 19,620 students who choose among 4,000 courses in 11 undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools including the nation’s first colleges devoted to hotel administration, industrial and labor relations, and veterinary medicine. Cornell’s flagship campus sits atop East Hill overlooking the city of Ithaca and the southern basin of Cayuga Lake and includes more than 260 major buildings on the 745 contiguous acres. Cornell is widely admired as one of the world’s most beautiful academic settings; the campus was once the family farm of the university’s co-founder, Ezra Cornell. Both Ithaca and the Tompkins County area offer a blend of rural practicality, urban sophistication, and international flavor that produces the warmth and friendliness of a small town combined with the rich cultural complexity of larger places.
