Organizational Information

Updated June 2016

Cornell University is a single legal entity comprising undergraduate, graduate, and professional colleges in Ithaca and New York City. The University has three primary campus clusters:

Ithaca-based campuses include the undergraduate and graduate units located in Ithaca, New York, the Agricultural Experimental station in Geneva New York and the Cornell Tech campus in New York City.

Weill Cornell Medicine campuses include the medical graduate and professional units in New York City, and one in Doha, Qatar.

Collaborative projects between researchers on the Ithaca and Weill Cornell Medicine campuses are set up as “intercampus awards”. Since these campuses maintain separate sponsored programs, compliance and finance systems as well as different federally approved rates, some administrative processes are necessary to ensure that each campus is able to administer the projects in compliance with those requirements. In all other respects an intercampus award is similar to an award that involves collaborators from the same campus but from different units or departments.
