Cornell launches To Do the Greatest Good campaign
A newly launched, major fundraising campaign aims to shape Cornell as the model university for the 21st century and beyond, building on its foundation of world-class academics, research and engagement.
To Do the Greatest Good: the Campaign for Cornell University, a five-year, $5 billion campaign, is named for a note from founder Ezra Cornell about his reasons for founding the university. The campaign will focus on three pillars: educating students to be leaders who carry the Cornell ethos forward; tackling the world’s most challenging problems, from sustainability to health to social and economic equity; and connecting Cornell with the world through public engagement, international programs and global reach.
