Undergraduate Student Life

New health center design takes shape; fundraising proceeds

The design has been unveiled for a new university health center planned to open at Cornell in 2017 as a comprehensive update and expansion of the current Gannett Health Services facility. The proposed center will more than double the size of usable space for campus health services, from 25,000 to 52,000 square feet, to meet the needs of a larger student population – including more than 100,000 clinical visits per year – and increasingly complex public health requirements and initiatives in the Cornell community.

With the design development phase completed, the project will go through city and university approvals, including those of the Cornell Board of Trustees. The City of Ithaca Planning Board’s site plan review is in May. Pending approvals, construction is slated to begin in the spring of 2015.

New gifts and commitments totaling $9.81 million have been received toward a $25 million fundraising goal for the health center. 

"The philanthropic support for this project is deeply appreciated,” said Susan Murphy ’73, Ph.D. ’94, vice president for student and academic services. “University leaders past and present have been moved to make this important investment in students’ health, which is so fundamental to educational achievement and a thriving community."

Message from Vice President Susan Murphy

Our goal is simple: help every student thrive.

We strive to create a campus community that is among the best in the nation in terms of its vibrancy, diversity, health, and creativity – one that aims to help each and every student flourish at Cornell.  By working with partners throughout Cornell, including colleges, schools, and units, our division puts students at the center, with programs and services that directly support academic success and result in personal, social, and leadership growth.

Our scope is wide; our impact is deep.

A New Healthcare Center for a New Generation

Cornell is in the planning stages of renovating and transforming its Gannett Health Services facility. With approval from the Board of Trustees to develop a project plan, the university seeks to enlarge and reconfigure space within Gannett to address an unprecedented level of demand for its physical, mental, and public health services.

The renovation will help Gannett advance its pioneering college healthcare delivery model.

The $55 million project is a top fundraising priority for Student and Academic Services, with a $25 million goal for the facility and an additional $17 million goal for endowed positions and programs that include:

  • Executive Director ($5 million)
  • Director of Counseling and Psychological Services ($3 million)
  • Preventive Alcohol Strategies and Alcohol Intervention Program ($2.5 million)

 

Living-Learning Experiences Boost Student Success

Following a decade-long transformation of Cornell’s residence halls to integrate living and learning, the university continues to invest in strengthening student communities.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Carol Tatkon Center serves as an intellectual, support, and resource center on North Campus for first-year students. Its programs and services help students transition to Cornell, promoting their well-being and academic success while connecting them with faculty outside of classrooms. The center seeks program support and gifts to name spaces within the center.
 

Five residential West Campus houses for sophomore, transfer, and upper-level student offer students a sense of community and foster student-faculty conversations outside of classrooms, while supporting the social, personal, and leadership development. House professors and deans, together with our house fellows, provide intellectual and social leadership, create program opportunities, and work closely with student leaders. The university seeks support for endowed positions and programs.

Hunter R. Rawlings III Cornell Presidential Research Scholarships Program

When focused students enroll at Cornell with demonstrated interests and skills in research, Rawlings Presidential Research Scholarships allow them to actively engage in that enterprise as soon as possible. This competitive scholarship program is open to undergraduates across all fields of study, and affords selected students the opportunity to work with a faculty mentor. Rawlings Scholars become some of our very best students, publishing in peer-reviewed journals and gaining recognition in prestigious scholarship competitions. Gifts to endow new Rawlings Scholarships can help fund research-support accounts for student use, ensuring they will have the funds necessary to accomplish their goals.  In addition, students with need will receive financial support for tuition and to reduce their student loans.
