About Cornell and the College of Veterinary Medicine

Located in Ithaca, New York, Cornell University is a bold, innovative, inclusive and dynamic teaching and research university where staff, faculty and students alike are challenged to make an enduring contribution to the betterment of humanity. Cornell is one of the largest and most diverse institutions in the Ivy League. We are a community of 22,000 students and more than 10,000 faculty and staff members representing more than 80 countries and hundreds of disciplines — global cultures, backgrounds, experiences, perspectives and ideas.

The College of Veterinary Medicine is recognized internationally as a leader in public health, biomedical research, animal medicine and veterinary medical education. Ranked consistently as one of the best veterinary colleges in the nation, the college's strength is due to its strategic breadth of focus areas and its depth of expertise in each of those areas; to the achievements of its faculty, staff, alumni and students; and to its commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University’s heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans and Individuals with Disabilities. We also recognize a lawful preference in employment practices for Native Americans living on or near Indian reservations. Cornell University is an innovative Ivy League university and a great place to work. Our inclusive community of scholars, students, and staff impart an uncommon sense of larger purpose, and contribute creative ideas to further the university's mission of teaching, discovery, and engagement.
