The Power of the Partnership

Partnership is essential to Cornell’s creative and efficient approach to interdisciplinary collaboration to advance the university’s mission of rigorous scholarship, pioneering research, and public engagement. Cornell’s 14 colleges and schools, more than 100 interdisciplinary research centers and related groups propel the development of new technologies, the creation of new knowledge, and the search from different perspectives for sustainable solutions to some of the world’s most vexing problems.
