The Dean is the academic, administrative, and community leader of the college, responsible for developing the capacity of the college and moving associated programs forward in reputation, distinction and influence. The dean is expected to expand the intellectual, financial and human assets of the college, while serving as a critical member of the senior leadership team of Cornell University.

The various areas of the college are led by a team of assistant deans, associate deans, department chairs and directors who report directly to the dean. These members oversee the daily operations of their particular units and collaborate with the dean to fulfill the college's mission.
