Cornell by the numbers.
|Founded||1865||By Ezra Cornell and Andrew Dickson White.|
|Opened||1868||Morrill Hall was the first building constructed on the main Ithaca campus, which today includes 702 buildings on 2300 acres.|
|Identity||Public and private||Cornell is the federal land-grant institution of New York State, a private endowed university, a member of the Ivy League/Ancient Eight, and a partner of the State University of New York. It has been described as the first truly American university because of its founders' revolutionarily egalitarian and practical vision of higher education, and is dedicated to its land-grant mission of outreach and public service.|
|Colleges and schools||14||Seven undergraduate units and four graduate and professional units in Ithaca, two medical graduate and professional units in New York City, and one in Doha, Qatar. The Cornell Tech campus in New York City is the latest addition.|
