As we build our future home on Roosevelt Island, we gain the island’s 14,000 residents as neighbors. Whether to youth, seniors, people with disabilities, the arts community or island governance, we extend our mission of improving the connection between people and technology. In the true land grant tradition, we aim to broadly apply the expertise and resources of Cornell University for lasting impact on the Roosevelt Island community.
