Academics


Faculty Highlights

Our faculty have garnered more than their share of Nobel and Pulitzer prizes, MacArthur "genius" awards, Guggenheims, National Medals of Science, and elections to prestigious national academies in science, engineering, and the arts. Cornell faculty members write the books others read, create knowledge in their fields, and even help define the fields themselves.
