Final Report

Responding to a charge by President Martha Pollack, the President’s Visioning Committee on Cornell in New York City issued its findings on May 1, 2018, defining a vision for Cornell’s growth in NYC over the next decade. The committee recommends that by academic year 2029 Cornell in NYC should be a fully operational urban campus that supports year-round undergraduate, graduate and non-degree educational programs, scholarly research and public engagement. Cornell’s NYC presence should not duplicate or supplant successful Ithaca-based activities, but rather enhance and extend Cornell’s many core strengths and distinctive capabilities. The report outlines the broad contours of a path to achieve this vision.
