The Campaign for Cornell University

In 1865 Ezra Cornell wanted "to do the greatest good" with his resources, and he decided that founding a university was the most powerful way to do it. That commitment grew into a global institution whose founding principle of "... any person ... any study" revolutionized higher education. In 2021, Cornellians remain united by the drive to make Cornell and the world better for future generations.
